During his visit to Kodandareddy Nagar slum in Musheerabad, local residents poured out their grievances before the Minister and explained how miserable their lives have become after all their belongings and essential provisions were washed away in the floods, which also caused severe damage to their dwellings.

Later speaking to the media, the Minister said that though the Collector has the authority to provide immediate financial relief he was still waiting for an approval from Pragathi Bhavan, "which is atrocious". He asked the Collector and the GHMC Commissioner to immediately visit the slum and provide relief to the affected.
