Jung held a review meeting with senior officials of the municipal corporations on Wednesday to take stock of Delhi's preparedness for the monsoon.

"The preparations for monsoon must start much in advance so that the government is ready in all respects to tackle all eventualities," Jung said.

Jung also asked the Public Works Department and Municipal Commissioners to ensure that their Chief Engineers and Superintendent Engineers continuously monitor and assess the situation on the ground from the middle of May till the end of the monsoon season in September.

He further instructed the departments to build a much better intra-departmental coordination for smooth redressal of queries during the monsoon.

"There must be better intra-departmental coordination between the municipalities, the PWD and the Irrigation and Flood Control Department. All control rooms set up by different governmental agencies must be able to address the queries of the respondents, irrespective of whose jurisdiction it falls under," Jung said.
