Palghar, Sep 15 (PTI) Guardian minister Dada Bhuse on Tuesday said quake-resistant houses will be built in tremor- prone villages of Maharashtra's Palghar district.
The district guardian minister visited villages in Dahanu and Talasari talukas, which were rocked by a series of low-intensity earthquakes last week.
Experts will be consulted to figure out ways to reduce the intensity of tremors and quake-resistant houses will be built in affected villages, Bhuse said.
A report will be submitted to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray about the same, he said.
The minister also released a booklet brought out by the District Disaster Control cell about measures to be taken during earthquakes. PTI COR ARU ARU
