Local Bodies Minister Brahm Mohindra on Wednesday issued directions to ensure comprehensive measures to prevent any chance of disease outbreak in the state, especially in the low-lying areas.

Chairing a meeting to review the overall preparedness of the department, Mohindra instructed the authorities to ensure plugging of open sewage holes to prevent its mixing with drinking water.

Expressing satisfaction over the receding water levels, he directed the authorities to put the low-lying areas under 24x7 surveillance and pump out stagnated water. — TNS
