Targetting Andhra government over gas leakage at Sainor Life Sciences Pvt Ltd in Visakhapatnam, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday alleged that gas leakages have become a regular feature owing to "lack of action and alacrity from the government". In a tweet, Naidu said, "My heartfelt condolences to the families of the two individuals who've lost their lives in the gas leak at Sainor Life Sciences in #Vizag. Gas leakages have become a regular feature owing to lack of action and alacrity from the AP Govt. Time to act promptly on erring companies."

As per the TDP's official statement, Naidu demanded the state government to immediately provide "best medical treatment" to those injured in the incident. "TDP chief termed it as an alarming situation as another poisonous gas leak incident occurred even as the people of the port city were yet to recover from the shock of LG Polymers tragedy," reads the statement.
