Srinagar, Sep 11 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi directed the Home Ministry to send senior officers from Delhi and other states to coordinate with local administration over the relief and rescue operations being carried out in flood-affected belts of Kashmir, reports said.

Sources said the meeting was attended by Minister of State in the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh, cabinet secretary Ajit Seth, principal secretary to the PM Nripendra Misra, additional principal secretary to the PM, secretaries of the Union ministries and many officials from the Defence.
