These Brave IAS Officers are Going Out of Their Way To Help With Kerala's Relief Operations
With Kerala reeling under the 'worst floods' of the century, everyone, including several IAS officers, are going out of their way to help with the relief operations.
As Kerala continues to drown with the heavy rainfall and floods, the residents are using every possible means to attract your attention towards them. Most of the youth are using social media to spread the emergency contacts and details of contributing to the chief minister’s fund. Army and emergency services are working tirelessly to help the people in crisis.
However, there are many unsung heroes too, whose efforts are now being lauded on social media – the IAS officers of Kerala.
