Noida: For the last few days, it has been raining heavily in many districts of Uttar Pradesh. Because of this, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a high-level meeting at his residence on Monday. Yogi Adityanath said in the meeting that important steps have been taken for the safety of the people. In the next few days, the possibility of increasing the water level in various rivers in the state will become very high. Yogi Adityanath has ordered the NDRF, water level monitoring team, PAC, and disaster management teams to remain active for 24 hours.

In a meeting, Chief Minister Yogi reviewed the efforts being made in view of public interest after heavy rains in various districts of the state and gave necessary guidelines. Yogi Adityanath said during the meeting that after heavy rains in Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand, there is a possibility of an increase in the water level of various rivers in the state in the next few days. In view of this, along with the Irrigation and Water Resources Department, all the departments related to relief and rescue should remain in alert mode.

The Chief Minister said that so far this year, 24 districts of the state have received more than normal rainfall, while 31 districts have received less than average rainfall. According to weather experts, there is a possibility of good rainfall in these districts in the month of July. Constant monitoring of the changing weather conditions should be done. In the last few days, there have been sad reports of loss of life and property due to lightning in many places. Permissible assistance should be made available to such victim families immediately. This year, incidents of lightning are increasing in Eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the Government of India is also cooperating in the process of installing rain gauges in every village and that this work should be completed expeditiously. Build dialogue with the Revenue, Relief, and Agriculture Departments, the State Disaster Management Authority, the Remote Sensing Authority, the Indian Meteorological Department, and the Central Disaster Management Authority and develop such a system so that common people can get accurate weather information on time.
