Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s guidance and strategies proved effective in dealing with the recent cyclone Biparjoy. He alerted the governance and administrative machinery well in time to deal with the Biparjoy crisis.

Cyclonic storms keep coming in India almost every year whether in the Arabian Sea or in the Bay of Bengal. Generally, cyclones are generated by atmospheric disturbances around a low pressure area. Cyclones are usually followed by severe storms and bad weather. If we look at the events of the last 2 to 3 decades, the dangerous storms that India had to face, along with the loss of life and property, had to suffer a large number of casualties. On the contrary, the precautionary preparations made by the Central and State Governments on receiving information about Cyclone Biparjoy, which hit Gujarat recently, at least

At least less casualties have been saved.

The alertness, patience, prudence and seriousness with which the head of the house succeeds in reducing the magnitude of the crisis to zero in calamities, they are established in history as Dhirodat heroes. In the last nine years of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s tenure, it has been proved time and again that he does not lose patience in any disaster to save the lives of the countrymen and confronts them with well-thought-out strategies; Be it cyclones, other natural calamities or heavy rains and floods, any threat to the security and integrity of the country or a global pandemic like Covid-19. With their action plans, they have been able to better manage the prevention of loss of life and other damages.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s guidance and strategies proved effective in dealing with the recent cyclone Biparjoy. He alerted the governing and administrative machinery ahead of time to deal with the crisis of Biparjoy. A high level meeting was held with the agencies of Swayam, Center and Gujarat to ensure that the residents of the affected area of ​​the cyclone were taken to safe places and maintenance of essential arrangements like electricity, water, health and telecommunication was ensured. The Prime Minister also ensured the safety of the animals, which is a testimony to his sensitivity. The result of the instructions of the Prime Minister was that due to the cyclone

The control rooms, which are an important part of preparedness, have worked day and night and are doing so.

In the last decade, a lot of efforts have been made to prevent loss of life due to cyclones in different regions of India. Some dangerous cyclones also resulted in loss of life. But public safety was kept on priority in the advance arrangements made to deal with Biparjoy cyclone. According to the forecast of the Meteorological Department, there could be rain with strong winds in many states of India. In view of these circumstances, concrete security arrangements were made in the respective states by making an effective action plan. I believe that due to all these arrangements, loss of lives due to the effect of Biperjoy could be prevented.

how does all this happen

As we know that about 58 percent of the land area in India is prone to earthquakes of moderate to very high intensity and more than 40 million hectares of area i.e. 12 percent of the country’s land area remains prone to floods. We have about 5700 km of coastal area up to 7516 km of cyclone and tsunami prone area. Keeping all these things in mind, the Prime Minister has paid a lot of attention to the strategies of disaster management so that the poor people affected by the disaster do not suffer loss of life and property.

The first and most important point in the disaster management strategy adopted by the Prime Minister is pre-disaster management and preparation. Even after this, if a disaster occurs and the preparations prove to be inadequate and if the disaster causes damage, then complete preparations for rehabilitation. Reconstruction and restoration of normalcy after rehabilitation. The Prime Minister has put together all these points in his management strategy. Due to his efforts, today disaster management is essentially included in the process of development in our country. Apart from this, the Prime Minister has further strengthened the role of all the ministries related to disaster management. He has linked ministries like Atomic Energy, Civil Aviation, Earth Sciences, Environment and Forests, Home, Health, Railways, Space and Water Resources to preparedness for the management of disasters. The Prime Minister has also emphasized on modernizing the systems for forecasting and warning of disasters and using the latest systems, so that all concerned agencies are alert to forecast disasters by playing their active role. Shri Modi is also in constant contact with the World Meteorological Organisation, the Pacific Tsunami Warning System and other regional and global organizations.

I, on behalf of the citizens of Madhya Pradesh, heartily congratulate Prime Minister Shri Modi, whose farsightedness and effective strategy have given the countrymen a security shield along with happiness and prosperity.
