So far, over 34 tourists are dead in the Godavari boat tragedy at Devipatnam in Eastern Godavari district. CM Jaganmohan Reddy promised all help but the victims families faced hell of a time due to non-cooperation from officials. Even more stunning facts are coming out now.
Actually, an SI stopped the boat operators and objected to carrying 93 tourists on the boat. But the SI had to later give his green signal following a telephone call from Tourism Minister Avanti Srinivas himself. The Minister apparently didn’t care about safety concerns in his hurry to help the tour operators. This shocking news was disclosed by Ex MP Harsha Kumar who has got confirmed information from within the staff who were on duty on that day.
Jagan talked so many things about people safety when a similar tragedy occurred during TDP Regime. After coming to power, he didn’t take any special measures for monitoring boat operators. Overloading the boat for quick money has now caused a huge tragedy. Jagan has a moral compulsion to clarify on Harsha Kumar allegations on the Minister’s role behind the boat tragedy.
