Maharashtra CM Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray visited Chiplun today.
After inspecting the Chiplun market, he chaired a review meeting to take stock of the rescue and relief works.
The CM later addressed the press and made the following points;
Haphazard announcements won’t be made about the compensation for the sake of popularity. We will take a thorough review of the flood situation in the whole state and then make announcements. We will also review the aid that needs to be sought from the Central Government.
I have already given instructions to the administration to ensure that technical issues do not hold up compensation. We will set up a flood control system to ensure that such incidents do not happen in the future.
Directions have been given to the district collectors to provide food, medicines, clothing immediately, and other essentials to those affected.
Considering the repeated occurrence of these disasters, a system on the lines of the NDRF will be created in all the affected districts. The SDRF will be further strengthened.
