Andhra Pradesh Women’s Commission (APWC) Chairperson Vasireddy Padma has alleged that the distribution of gifts of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has cost three lives and she sought a comprehensive report on the stampede incident from the police.

Vasireddy Padma visited those who were undergoing treatment in the Government General Hospital here on Monday. She inquired with the hospital superintendent about the condition of the injured. She directed the doctors to provide the best medical treatment to the injured. She termed the death of three women in a stampede as unfortunate.

Talking to the media, she said that the distribution of a saree and a few commodities was organised under the directions of Chandrababu Naidu but to escape from the blame they were using the name of a trust.

“Help should be in such a manner that it should enhance self-respect. A large number of women were lured in the name of distributing gifts by the TDP leaders. The Guntur stampede incident took place only after four days after the Kandukur stampede incident in which 8 persons were killed,” she said.

All those who died in the stampede and the injured are poor, she deplored. No remorse was seen in Chandrababu during the Kandukur stampede incident, she flayed.

Vasireddy Padma said that she asked the superintendent of police to give her a comprehensive report on the stampede incident. She demanded the Vyyuru foundation submit their explanation of the incident.

“Extending help to the poor should not be used for publicity. It is highly improper to try to use the poor for political mileage. Organising a programme with thousands of people without taking adequate security measures is reprehensible. Before fading from the memory of 8 deaths in the Kandukur stampede, the Guntur stampede took place,” Vasireddy Padma lamented.

The Jagan Mohan Reddy-headed government has extended Rs 2 lakh crore worth of benefits under various schemes. The government has launched the distribution of ration commodities at doorsteps, doing away with the forming long queues before the ration shops, she claimed. “The government has organised many programmes to distribute benefits of welfare schemes but no untoward incident has taken place,” she claimed.
