Chairing a meeting of the State Flood Control Board through video conferencing, Captain Amarinder also ordered to place Rs 10 crore at the disposal of the Deputy Commissioners of flood-prone districts to deal with any emergent situation arising due to heavy rains/floods.

The Chief Minister directed the DCs of the flood-prone districts to prioritize their tasks and submit the list of projects requiring immediate attention to the Finance Department for sanctioning of the funds.
