Bhubaneswar: Odisha government on Wednesday cancelled puja holidays of its employees in 14 districts and ordered deployment of Disaster Rapid Force in all vulnerable points in view of Cyclone threat.





It also asked the collectors of the districts to be on high alert as a depression formed over the Bay of Bengal could intensify and hit the state coast.

“The state government has cancelled puja holidays of employees in coastal districts in view of possible cyclone,” Revenue and Disaster Management Minister S N Patro told reporters.

“Besides issuing instructions to other departments to remain alert to the situation, the government has already ordered deployment of Odisha Disaster Rapid Action Force (ODRAF),” he said.
