Lucknow: At a time when torrential rains are causing havoc in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday conducted an aerial survey of the flood-affected areas in Lakhimpur Kheri and Gonda districts. In fact Areal surveys are becoming a fashion statement nowadays. Shwetank Srivastava, a UP MLA actually did a survey of his own house where a terrace pipeline was leaking.


On Friday Morning, Shwetank was told by his servants that the terrace pipeline was leaking and the terrace was filled with water. It needed immediate attention from a plumber. But then reputation was also at stake. At a time when ministers and MPs are doing surveys of flood-hit areas, it doesn’t make sense for Shwetank to sit quietly. And so he took a major decision. Shwetank called a private chopper and went on the aerial survey of his house. The chopper flew for around 50 minutes over the top of Shwetank’s house. The result derived after the survey was that a plumber is required to fix the pipeline and Shwetank asked his secretary to give him a full report of the survey findings.

In fact, a press conference was called at his house where Shwetank briefed the media about the Aerial survey and the need to go for it. According to him, an aerial survey gives a full account of the incident and also the fix required for it. As from the ground, it is not possible to see everything that is impacting the terrace. After looking at the incident, more MLAs have gone ahead with the decision to do more aerial surveys in future. The chopper industry is the one to benefit from such decisions.
