Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah will undertake an extensive tour of the flood-hit districts from tomorrow, official sources said today.

Leader of Opposition in state Assembly N Chandrababu Naidu has found fault with Chief Minister for not visiting the flood victims so far.

"I had not visited Kurnool or other places only to ensure that relief operations are not hampered because of my visit. Besides, most of the ministers too did not tour the affected districts only for this reason. But the respective district ministers and in charge ministers have been there all along overseeing the operations and coming to the rescue of the victims," the Chief Minister told reporters here today.

Rosaiah will visit Alampur in Mahbubnagar district and later proceed to Mantralayam where he will interact with flood-affected people. He will then go to Kurnool town and hold a review meeting with senior officials and public representatives.

After an overnight stay in Kurnool, the Chief Minister will fly to Nandyal town on Monday and talk to the local people who were badly hit by the flood caused by river Kundu.

He will then fly to Repalle in Guntur district which was inundated by flood water from river Krishna because of a massive breach that occurred to the right embankment at Oleru.
