Visited Cyclone Yaas affected areas in Bhadrak: Dharmendra Pradhan

Visited Cyclone Yaas affected areas in Bhadrak post the aerial survey.

Most of the areas are still water-logged.

I also interacted with the villagers, they told me that the severe storm has extensively damaged their crops and houses. One of their key demands was a pucca house.

I also joined the relief work being carried out by BJP Odisha karyakartas as a part of the ‘Sewa Hi Sangathan’ initiative.

Our mission is to speed up relief and rehabilitation, extend all support and ensure that normal life returns for those affected by the cyclone.

Happy to have visited the restored Fitzgerald Fountain at Metro junction earlier today: Aaditya Thackeray

Happy to have visited the restored Fitzgerald Fountain at Metro junction earlier today.

First installed in 1867, it had been moved out in the 1960s.

Now it is restored to its full glory and back with the lamp, drinking water spouts and fountains, thanks to our conservationists

Having visited this monument earlier during the ongoing restoration works, one can only appreciate its beauty and marvel inside and outside.

The only other twin was in Northampton, UK, but apparently no longer. Thus, this is a unique monument now.

We are restoring all the old pyaus, milestones and such monuments in the State. This is an important footprint of our heritage and engineering marvels that we hold since the past. If we may see it, they are utilities merged with public art.

Aaditya Thackeray – Minister, Maharashtra Govt.
