Congress chief Rahul Gandhi yesterday hoped the governments of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh are ready to handle the situation arising out of Cyclone Titli which was moving towards the coastal areas of the states.
He also urged Congress workers to rise to occasion and help fellow countrymen that might be affected due to the cyclone.
In a Facebook post, he said “The cyclone is moving towards Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. This is a time to exercise caution.”
“I hope the state governments and the administration are ready to handle the situation. The Congress workers are requested to stand with their countrymen in this time of need and face it bravely,” he said.
The deep depression over the Bay of Bengal has intensified into cyclonic storm Titli and is moving towards the Odisha-Andhra Pradesh coast, the IMD had said in a special bulletin Tuesday.
