MR. CHAIRMAN: No, please confine to the subject.

PROF UMMAREDDY VENKATESWARLU : I had followed that statement. Rice which was collected was stored somewhere. It was sold and the amount was remitted... (Interruptions)

SHRI N. JANARDHANA REDDY : How can you sell rice given for charity and make money? That is what I was telling. He has confirmed what I have said. ... (Interruptions)

MR. CHAIRMAN : Please confine yourself to the present situation of drought and cyclone.

SHRI N. JANARDHANA REDDY : Sir, he himself has said that we had criticised you. We had criticised you when a fault was committed by the Government. But when there was a lapse, we have ... (Interruptions)

PROF UMMAREDDY VENKATESWARLU : Probably it was not audible to the hon. Member. I said with reference to Orissa. ... (Interruptions) I pointed out about the Leaders' version that the Chief Minister has not adequately reacted on the situation. He said that he wants to be above politics but he is trying to politicise the issue. ... (Interruptions) I only reminded him that in the Kargil issue, the Congress Party is trying to get a political mileage. I wanted to remind them. ... (Interruptions)

SHRI N. JANARDHANA REDDY : I want to remind my hon. friend, who was telling about betelvine. During the cyclone, it is always the betelvine, which is very vulnerable and it gets affected. It cost us very heavily. It is in our State. We give compensation for betelvine. In spite of it, there is a heavy loss.

You are mentioning about salt water for the paddy crop. Even if the paddy crop is inundated for one day in salt water, it gets affected.

Anyway, our sympathies are with Orissa and other three States, where these devastations have taken place. Let the Government of India open its eyes, have an institution, a National Institute for Disaster Management located in one of the coastal areas or in any other part of the country with all the necessary equipment.

Whenever there is a flood, for taking the ration to a village where road or any other portable mode is not there, we have to summon the boats from Vishakapatnam Naval Command. They do come but by the time they come, there will be no waterlogging. Even if there is a low level water and you want to use the boats, you will have to take the permission from the Naval Command. So, in order to meet all these things, the then State Government in 1977 itself, thought of providing all the equipment. My friend was telling that it was not possible for him to go by road from morning six o' clock to evening five o' clock. It does happen. In 1979, in Andhra Pradesh for three days, an eight-kilometre patch of road was blocked and we brought electric saws and cut it with the help of the military personnel. These are the equipment to be preserved. ... (Interruptions)

SHRI ANADI SAHU : If you have the Contingency Plan, you can continue with that. ... (Interruptions)

SHRI N. JANARDHANA REDDY : The Contingency Plan is already there. It is not a new thing. Since 1977, it is there in the country, particularly in some coastal belts.

What I want to tell the Government is that most of the people does not experience these problems. That is why, whenever there is a talk of Central team, we draw an officer each from the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Railways, and the Ministry of Surface Transport and send them. Most of them do not know what is the effect of the cyclone. So, they do come and give a report. That is the end of the whole issue.

There should be a permanent machinery, permanent cell to look after these kind of damages. Unless we do something on a permanent nature, we cannot meet these disasters, particularly in the coastal areas which are wedded with Bay of Bengal.

Sir, I do not want to take the time of the House. I only want to point out that unless the National Democratic Alliance looks after these disasters, they will become a National Disaster Alliance.

Thank you.

MR. CHAIRMAN: Only twenty minutes are left and so many speakers are still there to speak.

SHRI RAJIV PRATAP RUDY : Sir, I am representing the BJP. Only one Member has spoken from this side and there are about ten Members ...(Interruptions)

MR. CHAIRMAN: No, already one Member has spoken from your side. You are the second speaker.

SHRI RAJIV PRATAP RUDY : Yes, only one Member has spoken from this side, Sir. I was watching that an hon. Member from that side was asked ten times to sit down. So, at least you allow me to conclude. Otherwise it will be a perfunctory debate. Every time some Members speak and no one cares to bother about it. So, if that is the situation, I can get back to my seat. But someone has to start thinking how these things could be done. In the last fifty years, we have been talking about this. Every time we have been spending the time here. If we do not think about it now, this country is going to face a similar situation in all the years to come.

MR. CHAIRMAN: Now, please conclude.
