Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann Wednesday said he was on top of the flood situation and will leave no stone unturned to send relief and compensation to those affected.
In a tweet, he said that the flood situation in Punjab is completely under control. “..I and my officers are in touch with the Himachal government and BBMB all the time..Pong and Ranjit Sagar Dam are under control..it is our duty to protect people’s life and property. There is a natural calamity. let’s all face it together…people’s government with people..,” he said in the post.
Earlier, the Chief Minister interacted with a delegation of Dera Beas that handed over a cheque worth Rs 2 crore for the CM relief fund to help the people in the flood-affected areas of the state.
CM Mann said that he has ordered a ‘special girdawari’ after the floods based on which compensation is being given to the affected people. He said that every loss of crop, cattle, house or anything has been covered in the special girdawari to fully compensate the people. The government has started distributing compensation to the flood victims from Wednesday, said CM Mann.
