Bhubaneswar:    As the State reeled under the   effects of Cyclone Amphan  (in addition to the deadly  Coronavirus)  Odisha Police has shown  their mettle by rendering  their untiring and selfless services to the  affected people in distress and bringing succor to them by all possible means.  

As Cyclone Amphan crossed the coasts of Odisha resulting in destruction, the police personnel across the State reached out people in distress, and effectively handled the restoration of road and communication network in the far flung areas of the State.

Be it Mayurbhanj's Bangiriposi, Bhadrak's Chandbali and Basudevpur,  Jagatsinghpur, Jajpur, the police  personnel were seen clearing roads after the Cyclone Amphan ripped across the State.

The roads of remote far flung Baghmari village under Talchuan PS and Pentha village under Rajnagar PS of Kendrapara were cleared by the police.

Despite heavy winds, officers of Bansada in Bhadrak were seen clearing roads. 

At this hour of crisis, Odisha Police came forward and stood solidly with the affected people.  Hours before the cyclone, police undertook massive awareness exercise among the public and helped in the evacuation process and as the Cyclone struck, it jumped into the restoration process.

Kendrapara's SP Niti Sekhar and DIG Ashis Singh were seen moving round remote areas and bringing people to safe shelters working towards their  commitment to zero casualty approach of Odisha government.

They always rise to the occasion and play their  role. In every situation, the Odisha police discharged their duties relentlessly to serve the people round the clock to protect and keep the citizens safe, be it fight against Coronavirus or Cyclone Amphan.

As citizens of Odisha, we salute these brave frontline warriors who have served the citizens with true grit and determination  in the time of need, whenever it arose.
