Prime minister assures all help to flood-hit Uttarakhand
June 19, 2013 New Delhi:
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday directed all central government agencies to assist in rescue and relief operations in flood-affected Uttarakhand and assured Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna of all help, a statement said.
The whole nation came forward to help Uttarkhand with all their resources. ARMY, Air Force, Para military everyone mobilize their resources for rescue operation.
Uttarakhand is privileged that four DRDO establishments are situated in Dehradun, Mussoorie and Haldwani.
But it is very unfortunate that there is no sign of helping hand coming forward in this mission from DRDO. DEAL, DRDO, Dehradun is a premier communication organization which has expert scientists/ technical staff with enough latest equipment of communication. DEAL has the capability to give communication in any harsh condition. DEAL already provides communication in Antarctica missions and other strategic locations and also having expertise to give communication in mountainous terrain with NVIS mode of communications.
Earlier when earthquakes hit Uttarakhand, the DEAL team came forward to help local authorities at severely affected areas with their communication equipment.
What happened this time? DRDO scientists are only bothered about their promotions or extensions. For instance, Director DEAL was totally away all this period to manage his next service extension after the age of 62 years.
Only our new Scientific Adviser and GOD knows his ability, Sh Avinash Chander will be answerable after two years about what (workable SDR) nation will get from Sh R C Agarwal, Director, DEAL, Dehradun
God bless DRDO
