There is a intellibrief blog on Modi’s way of rescue efforts in tsunami Dec 2004. There is an article at Economic Times which says Narendra Modi led rescue efforts in Uttarakhand are not publicity gimmicks. Ghost of 15-150-1500-15000 rescues on Congress as Lincoln’s ghost in White House
There is no talk how many lives are saved by vocal Congress leaders! They are empty in this, they are fully pack only in corruption field and spreading lie.
Sonia Gandhi is busy in the inaugurations on June 23 in Raj and today in Kashmir, though she is not holding any title in the government. Why is Sonia Companion with PM to launch Rail link to Kashmir?.
Home Minister Shinde is busy with Bihar CM Nitish his newly friend Ex-communal now secular to lay the foundation of the training center and 552 km long Indo - Nepal border road construction.
Nitish and Sonia both are not the part of PM Manmohan Singh’s government. This is fact that Government thinks that voters are dogs so UPA Govt follows: "Hathi chale bazaar kutte bhoke hazaar…Let dogs to bark on us on our Sonia’s government. They have their own agenda and we have our own....”

Tsunami : Chief Minister of Gujarat Mr.Narendra Modi style of Functioning
Live-wire Narendra Modi leaves even Central Government speechless

New Delhi, 30th - (Agencies)
Following the terrible Tsunami waves to the South India, while deliberations were being held to convene the meeting of Crisis Management Group (CMG), the Chief Minister of a state on Western Coast, Gujarat, was presiding over the meeting of its CMG.
The meeting of CMG of Gujarat was held first and meeting CMG of Central Government later. The high speed with which the CM of Gujarat made preparations to meet the coming calamity has left the officers of Central Government amazed.
Following is a look at the style of functioning of Narendra Modi.
Morning: 9.30: Meeting of the team for Disaster Management
Morning: 10.30: Decision of helping Tsunami victims
Morning: 11.00: Message of consolation and sympathy sent to chief of the governments of Thailand, Sumatra, Indonesia.
Afternoon: 2.00 p.m. Programme of relief operations sketched and stocktaking
Evening: 5.00 Two planes loaded with relief equipment ready for flight.
Tsunami waves had hit Tamilnadu, Keral, and Andaman-Nicobar. But the lightening speed with which Modi was engaged in the relief work, has earned the admiration of the Central Government officers.
Modi established a control room for relief work in Gandhinagar. In this work, he took a very important step. To keep contact with Tamilnadu Government, he selected Tamil speaking officers from Gujarat, for coordinating with Kerala, he selected Malayalam Officers and he did the same thing about Andaman. He was in constant touch with Lt Government of Andaman, Ram Kapse to get a chance for the planes from Gujarat to land on the Port Blair aerodrome.
He was personally supervising what material should be sent to South Indian states. While selecting the material for relief work, the officers had listed Kurta and Pyjama. Modi corrected to read it as "Lungi - Shirt". The officers did not have the presence of mind to remember that where the relief material was being sent, people wear Lungi and Shirts and not Kurta-Pyjama, but Modi had it.
While the Disaster Management team of Central Government was surveying the areas, Modi selected 67 highly affected talukas and appointed 67 Officers. Every officer was directed to look after his own Taluka. He also directed them to take the cooperation of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh and other voluntary organization.
Economic Times:Narendra Modi led rescue efforts in Uttarakhand are not publicity gimmicks
By : Madhu Kishwar
When on Saturday evening, TV channels brought the news that Narendra Modi's visit to Uttarakhand to oversee relief operations had kicked off a major political storm, I decided to go and check for myself whether this was indeed a cheap publicity gimmick as alleged by the Congress or a serious response to a tragedy.
Here's my take, one that I know will find many disagreeing: those who call Modi a Rambo or a publicity-hungry politician have no clue what they are dealing with. Consider the following. Gujarat today has a fighting-fit bureaucracy because it was enabled to develop expertise, team spirit and deliver results under the most adverse circumstances.
The Gujarat Disaster Management Authority ( GDMA) has become a thoroughly professional institution capable of responding to natural or man-made disasters. It has a 24x7 monitoring system and well-publicized helpline numbers well known to Gujaratis - both in the country and abroad. Modi has succeeded in conveying to the citizens of Gujarat that the government is always there to serve them. That is why the first response of Gujaratis anywhere in the world is to contact the chief minister's office if they are caught in a calamity.
Also, consider this. Modi arrived in Delhi late 17th night for a meeting with the Planning Commission on 18th when news of cloudburst and landslides was telecast on TV. He held an emergency meeting to take stock of the situation since he knew that thousands of Gujaratis are likely to be among the Chardham pilgrims. Right away, a camp office was opened at Gujarat Bhavan and the Resident Commissioner's team in Delhi was made responsible for coordinating with Gujarati pilgrims.
On the 18th morning, Modi called Dr Pranav Pandya of the All World Gayatri Parivar to provide space and infrastructure in his Shanti Kunj campus for the relief centre proposed to be set up by the Gujarat government . He chose this campus because of his close knowledge of, and rapport with, this Gandhian institution that can house and feed thousands of people at a short notice.
It has a 2,000-strong community of swayamsevaks on the campus, plus 3,000-odd students of the Dev Sanskriti University. The campus also has a well-run hospital.
On the 18th evening itself, a set of computers with internet connections, telephone lines, television sets and all other paraphernalia required for Gujarat government's relief operation were set up. Therefore, when a team of Gujarat government IAS, IPS and IFS officers came, they could get going within minutes of reaching Shanti Kunj.
Team Gujarat had two officers from Uttarakhand - Assistant Director General of Police Bisht and Forest Service officer SC Pant - who had close knowledge of the terrain to guide both the stranded pilgrims as well as rescue teams on the safest possible routes to take. ADG Bisht went straight to Gupta Kashi from where the rescue operations are being launched.
A team of seven doctors trained in handling such emergencies, led by an orthopaedic surgeon, not only put in place an efficient first-aid service but are also attending to those severely injured.
I saw them go around to other relief camps and railway stations to attend to non-Gujaratis as well. The mandate of Team Gujarat in Uttarakhand is: take good care of rescued pilgrims as they arrive but send them home at the earliest possible in the most comfortable manner . Don't worry about expenditure or numbers.
