TDP chief Chandrababu has demanded the imposition of a health emergency in Eluru in West Godavari district in the wake of a large number of people falling ill. He called for an impartial inquiry into the causes of the misery. Chandrababu tweeted to this effect. More than 250 children and adults have fallen ill and the government has been asked to provide better treatment to all of them.
Chandrababu Naidu outraged that the state government is in a position of not providing safe drinking water to the people.
He said ” With more than 250 people now affected, the situation in #Eluru is worsening. I demand an impartial, full-fledged inquiry into the incident. Floods, cyclone or healthcare, the YSRCP Govt has been caught napping in emergency situations.Can there be a more unfortunate & bigger failure than this? The Eluru water contamination incident calls for a declaration of Health Emergency in Andhra Pradesh. Enough. The #Eluru incident is just the tip of an iceberg. The Govt’s negligence & the deterioration of healthcare services across AP stands exposed today. It’s a shame for any Govt if it can’t provide basic necessities like safe & clean drinking water to our people “
