Earlier, Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde reviewed the rain situation on Tuesday and said over 3,500 people had been shifted to safer places from flood-prone and vulnerable spots across the state, where several districts, including Mumbai, experienced downpour.
He said National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams have been been deployed wherever required and more personnel will be sent if needed. The CM, who took charge less than a week ago, said he has asked government officials to give utmost priority to preventing loss of lives in rain-related incidents. He was speaking to the media after reviewing the rain situation during a visit to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's disaster control room.
Since July 4, Maharashtra has been witnessing heavy rains with water-logging reported from urban areas, including Mumbai, while the level of some rivers was rising rapidly.
