Former PCC chief Botsa Satyanarayana had tough time with the locals when he went to visit the cyclone-hit areas.
The locals, especially women, opposed the VIP visits saying they were mere photo ops.
When he visited division No 21, the women asked him to first understand their problems. "What is the point in getting your pics clicked doing small things," they asked.
The senior Congress leader couldn't reply to them.
“No leader came to call on us till now. You are the only leader who came to console us. Who will come to the rescue of us if leaders like you indulge in tokenism?” the women asked Botsa.
A shocked Botsa tried to reason out with the ladies and later quietly left the area.
