Since the water is receding, the district administration needs to make a concrete plan for ensuring that life was put on normal mode in the coming seven days. The Deputy Director Local Government, Mandi Board and Rural Development departments are to ensure cleanliness in all the marooned villages. The sanitation and hygiene must be ensured to check the spread of diseases in the villages.
