Lieutenant general Rajan Bakhshi who is the new general officer commanding in chief of the central command in Lucknow, has the enormous task of carrying forward his predecessor Lt Gen Anil Chait’s work in Uttarkhand.

According to an army official, “The commander said he would be visiting the state soon to take stock of the situation.”

After evacuating nearly 40,000 people, the Army now has to take the rescued people to their homes.

Officials said rescue operations would continue for at least another week.
