CM urges Centre for early installation of DWRs in Balasore, Sambalpur




 Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today urged the Centre to expedite the process for installing Doppler Weather Radars at Balasore and Sambalpur.

In a letter to Union Minister of Earth Sciences, Science and Technology Harsh Vardhan, the chief minister said the decision to install as many as four Doppler Weather Radars in Odisha was taken by the Union government way back in the year 2006. While two radars, one each at Paradeep and Gopalpur, have been installed and made operational, they are yet to start functioning at Balasore and Sambalpur. “Doppler Radar Stations at these two stations would help, among others, tracking of local storms/thunderstorms in the Northern and Western parts of the State and providing of near real-time forecast to save many a loves”, he stated in his letter.






Editorial

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
