In view of the monsoon season, Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, while reviewing the disaster management in the Secretariat, has given these instructions to the government and the high officials of the districts. He said that the next three months are important from the point of view of disaster management. To deal with the challenges of disaster, the District Magistrate should take decisions at his level at an accelerated pace. Those problems which are not being resolved at the district level, they should be sent to the government. During this, instead of putting the responsibility on each other, the departments should work in coordination.
The Chief Minister said that we have to start relief and rescue operations immediately in case of disaster by reducing the response time. Therefore, the authorities have to be on alert at all times to deal with any challenge related to the disaster. Chief Minister Dhami instructed the district magistrates that the funds being given for disaster management in the districts should be used 100 percent according to the disaster standards.
Tracking system to be arranged:
The disaster affected should get compensation as per the disaster standards at the earliest. In the event of road, electricity, water supply being disrupted due to rain or landslide, the supply should be restored in the shortest possible time. He said that arrangements should be made for JCB’s tracking system along with adequate arrangements at disaster sensitive places. Apart from this, all satellite phones should be in ON state. The Chief Minister directed the officers that complete arrangements should be made for food items, essential medicines and other essential commodities for the hill districts and disaster sensitive areas of the state.

Number of SDRF teams to be increased:
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has given instructions to increase the number of SDRF teams at disaster sensitive places. The Chief Minister directed the District Magistrates to send the drainage plans to the districts where there are problems with the drainage system. The Chief Minister directed the District Magistrates that before the meetings held at the government level, the District Magistrates should hold meetings of all departments on related subjects, so that all the problems arising at the district level could be kept in the meeting held at the government level.

Instructions also given regarding Chardham and Kanwar Yatra:
The Chief Minister said that along with disaster management, Chardham Yatra and Kanwar Yatra are also important. This year, the number of devotees visiting the Chardham Yatra has increased rapidly. He directed the officers of the districts associated with the Chardham Yatra to ensure that the Chardham Yatra runs smoothly. Regarding the preparations for the Kanwar Yatra, the Chief Minister directed the District Magistrates Haridwar, Dehradun, Tehri and Pauri to make continuous coordination with the police.
