Army to intensify rescue operations as weather improves, 3G telecom services start functioning

OPERATION MEGH RAHAT: Army plans to intensify its rescue operation in flood-ravaged Jammu and Kashmir as weather shows signs of improvement. The focus will be on Srinagar city and South Kashmir where a large number of people remain trapped in their houses without any basic amenities. Noting that the troops were facing several challenges in the operation 'Megh Rahat', Northern Army Commander Lt Gen D S Hooda said in Udhampur they were trying to reach the people who were in the most precarious conditions as quickly as possible though they have received thousands of messages seeking help.
