Stampede at Andhra Pradesh Sankranti Kit Distribution: Three Women Dead


It is with great sorrow that we report on the tragic stampede that occurred at a Sankranti kit distribution event organized by the Vuyyuru Foundation in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh. The event, which was attended by thousands of people and featured TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu as the Chief Guest, ended in disaster when the crowd became uncontrollable after Naidu’s departure and broke through barricades, leading to the stampede. Tragically, three women lost their lives in the incident.

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was shocked by the news of the stampede that occurred in Guntur, resulting in the loss of lives. He has directed officials to ensure that those injured receive the best medical care possible. The Chief Minister expressed his condolences to the families of the victims and vowed to take necessary action to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future.

TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu was deeply distressed upon learning about the tragic incident that occurred in Guntur. In an effort to provide some form of support and aid to the families of the victims who lost their loved ones, Naidu has announced that he will be offering financial assistance of INR 5 lakh to each affected family. This gesture is meant to help alleviate some of the financial burden that these families may be facing in the aftermath of the tragedy.

Many people on social media have expressed their concern over the increase in the number of incidents like this, especially at political rallies. Just recently, at another TDP rally in Kandukur, seven people fell and lost their lives. Some users have even tweeted asking why people attend these rallies in person when they can hear the speeches on TV, the internet, or YouTube. They pointed out that the leaders often have similar scripts anyway. These comments reflect the frustration and disillusionment that some people may be feeling in regards to the perceived lack of value in attending these events.
