KOLLAM: Minister for Local Self Government, AC Moideen, has asked the local self-government institutions to prepare in case Kerala is not completely free of COVID-19 and another flood hits the state.

The minister has asked the institution to take steps to ensure the natural flow of water in earlier flood-hit areas. In this situation, measures should be taken smoothly without any hindrances. The illegal constructions that caused floods before should be identified and removed, the minister said.

'The local self-government institutions should ensure that there are no blocks for the natural flow of rivers. Wastes should be removed from drains, ponds, and sewers. Migrant workers who are willing to serve can be included in these works and the assistance of the labour department can be sought for this", minister Moideen said.
