Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday underscored the critical need for regular fire and electrical safety audits in hospitals and public places amid the ongoing heatwave that has resulted in numerous fatalities.

Chairing several meetings, including one on the post-Cyclone Remal situation in the northeast and another to review the new government's 100-day agenda, Modi took stock of various pressing issues.

Exit polls indicate a significant victory for the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance, cementing Modi's position for a third consecutive term.

In the review meeting for heatwave conditions, Modi directed officials to ensure the implementation of fire prevention drills and the productive use of biomass, as part of disaster readiness.

Modi was briefed on forecasts predicting persistent heatwaves in parts of Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Madhya Pradesh, while the monsoon is expected to be normal or above in most areas.

In a separate discussion on the aftermath of Cyclone Remal, Modi was updated on the cyclone's impact, detailing the loss of lives and property in Mizoram, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, and Tripura. The National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is actively engaged in rescue and relief efforts.

The Prime Minister assured continuous Union government support to the affected states and reviewed preparations for World Environment Day on June 5.

Planning for the new government's 100-day agenda began well before the Lok Sabha elections, with Modi instructing his ministers to prioritize key programs.
