After the continuous raining in the state, the residents of the coastal region in the state complained about shortage of food as one of the residents stated, "For the past four days, we have been without any proper food. There is nothing to cook, there is no way to light a fire either."

While a farmer claimed, "There is no fodder for the cattle. I don't know what I am going to do. I can only cry or drink pesticide."

However, the CM Konijeti Rosaiah on Nov 4 assured that input subsidy for farmers, who lost their crops would be paid at Rs 4,500 per hectare.

He also assured that families, who suffered damages would be paid reasonable compensation.
