DHEMAJI: Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma held a meeting with the Dhemaji district administration to review the COVID-19 situation. Since Dhemaji is a flood prone district, CM also took stock of flood preparedness.
He directed officials to collect data of rivers flowing down from Arunachal Pradesh and rainfall data of neighbouring states.
Biswa Sarma also asked Revenue and Disaster Mgmt department to explore feasibility for setting up fixed shelters on high rise platforms in consultation with DRDO. He also asked PWD (Roads) to immediately complete restoration of flood damaged roads.
The CM also directed the deputy commissioner to ensure vaccination of all govt officials at the earliest so that they can render services during floods.
CM urged officials to complete vaccination of targeted population within 75 days.
The CM also directed the DC to finalize land for setting up medical college at Dhemaji.
In order to develop the district as a dairy hub, the CM stressed upon preparing a value chain system for dairy production and processing, apart from large scale artificial insemination of cows for enhanced quality breed.
