DMK today asked the government to make permission from district administration and police, among other measures, mandatory for conducting disaster management drills after a 19-year-old student died of head injuries.
The government should issue an order to all state departments making permission from district administration and police mandatory to conduct such disaster management drills, DMK working president M K Stalin said in a statement here.
Expressing condolences over the death, he said there should also be experienced trainers and safety measures in place to avoid such incidents in future.
"I am pained by the fact that neither the trainer nor the college administration concerned took any precautionary or safety measures before conducting such drills," he said.
