UN Hails Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik’s ‘Disaster Management’ Efforts & Proud Odias Take Over Twitter
We all witnessed the wrath that the recent cyclones have brought upon the western and eastern coasts of India in the past few weeks.
The super severe cyclone Yaas left a trail of destruction in West Bengal and Odisha just a week ago.
However, the way each state government tackles and mitigates these natural disasters has a lot to do with the amount and severity of destruction caused.
Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik has always made sure that he does whatever it takes to fight the natural calamities in his state which is prone to such disasters, and his record proves that.
The Odisha government evacuated more than 7 lakh people timely in order to keep them safe during cyclone Yaas.
Patnaik’s efforts and planning got recognition from the United Nations.
He recently got appreciation for his well-resourced disaster management and authority and we couldn't be more proud.
The chief of UN office for disaster risk reduction (UNDRR), Mami Mizutori found Odisha’s disaster management and planning exemplary and note-worthy for other state governments.
She said that they can learn “strengthening disaster risk governance, investing in preparedness and scenario planning while spreading a greater understanding of disaster risk” from Odisha.
“Patnaik ... has provided political commitment necessary to build a robust and well-resourced disaster management authority ..In 1999, some 10,000 people died on Odisha coastline and that has never been repeated,” she said.
Upon learning this, Twitter India filled with pride and lauded the CM for his work and excellent leadership.
