Shah further said the preparations should be done to deal with any type of natural calamity and also on the medical emergency fronts. All Trained and specialized units should be deployed. He further the best possible facilities should be provided in the base camps,” he said.

He further directed all the security agencies to continue taking strict action against miscreants and should be more alert on all the sensitive places.
