Bhupendra Patel chief minister of Gujarat has given instructions to district and municipal authorities of flood-affected areas, including Rajkot and Jamnagar, to relocate people from low-lying areas to safer places and IAF choppers have also been directed for rescue and relief works.
Chief minister of Gujarat Bhupendra Patel visited some of the flood-affected areas in Jamnagar to take stock of the situation. This comes after he chaired a high-level review meeting on Monday to assess the flood situations in some parts of the Saurashtra region.
Besides, he has also been reportedly making an aerial survey of the affected regions. According to reports, Jamnagar and Rajkot districts of Gujarat are worst-hit after heavy rain led to overflowing dams in the state.
The chief minister has directed district and municipal authorities to shift people from the low-lying areas, and has also instructed three additional teams of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to Rajkot, and two teams to Jamnagar. Indian Air Force (IAF) helicopters have also been directed for rescue and relief works.
