New Delhi, Sep 28 (ANI): Union Home Minister Amit Shah inaugurated 17th Formation Day of National Disaster Management Authority in Delhi on September 28. While addressing the audience he said, “If the disaster has to be responded to in a few seconds, then only the public can do it, only disaster friends can do it from village to village. The concept of Aapda Mitra is very good, it is necessary to prepare the public for disaster.” He further added, “Aapda Mitra has been launched on a pilot basis in 30 flood prone districts in 25 states. 5500 Aapda Mitras and Aapda Sakhis have been added to this. Now we are going to implement Aapda Mitra Yojana in 350 districts affected by the disaster. Aapda Mitras worked really well in flood-affected areas.”
