Chandigarh: The Punjab government on Friday issued an alert in the state after a forecast of heavy rainfall in the next 48 to 72 hours.

Chief Minister Amarinder Singh directed all deputy commissioners in the state to closely monitor the situation.

He asked them to be prepared to deal with any exigency in view of the warning from the Indian Meteorological Department of heavy rainfall over the next two-three days in the state, according to an official release.

He has instructed field officers of revenue, drainage, health, food and animal husbandry departments to stay alert and be prepared to handle any eventuality arising out of the heavy rains.
