ANDHRA PRADESH-Political Uses of Cyclone

NATURE'S fury, which devastatingly struck the Andhra coast on November 19, has left behind not only countless scars on the enchanting countryside along the coast in Krishna and Guntur districts but also the stink of thousands of dead bodies of men, women and children and lakhs of cattle and other livestock. The politicians of the Congress and Janata parties have, by trying to derive political advantages out of the peoples' misery and destitution, added more stink to the already stinking atmosphere. The bureaucrats and the revenue department machinery, who always see the opportunity of their lives in every famine, fire and flood, have never had it so good, By attempting to reap a rich harvest (the real harvest of paddy being washed away) out of the crores of rupees being distributed, they remind one of the vultures of the Bengal famine days; but they are only walking in the footsteps of their political masters, the only difference being that one is after political power and eventual big money, while the other is after quick money.
