Amit Shah chairs Zonal Council meet
Bhopal, Aug 22 : Union Home Affairs and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah chaired a Central Zonal Council meeting on Monday in the Madhya Pradesh capital where life has been thrown off gear by more than 36 hours of incessant precipitation accompanied by squalls due to which Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his Chhattisgarh counterpart Bhupesh Baghel were compelled to participate via video-conferencing.
The gathering also involves Uttarakhand.
Meanwhile, power outages were the order of the day across more than half the city – where trees were uprooted – even as Energy Department teams battled inclement weather while endeavouring to restore normalcy. Schools were already declared closed on Sunday. Several planes were diverted.
