Chief Minister of Madhes Province Lalbabu Raut has said cooperation and coordination among three tiers of government are essential to minimize the loss of lives and property in a disaster.

At a province-level mock drill for disaster preparedness organized on the bank of Kamala River located at the border of Dhanusha and Siraha districts on Friday, CM Raut stressed the need for all governments to work in unison. The mock drill was organized by the provincial Ministry of Home Affairs and Communications.

He further said the Madhesh districts are at high risk of disaster due to over-exploitation of the Chure region and river beds. "Huge loss of lives and property are recorded every year due to monsoon-triggered floods and landslides, so collective efforts are warranted," CM Raut underscored.

He also informed that the Province government would establish a separate mechanism for disaster preparedness. It will work for the prevention and reduction of disaster risks, he vowed.

The teams of security persons including the Nepal Army, Nepal Police, and the Armed Police Force participated in the mock drill on monsoon-caused disaster preparedness.

The drill also conducted training to rescue disaster victims. Shifting victims to safer locations, providing first aid, ensuring self-safety, and others were practiced on the occasion.

The event was also attended by the ministers, chief district officers, chiefs of municipalities, political representatives, and media persons.
