Disaster: Tampering with the mountain wreaking havoc

The heavy rains that have been wreaking havoc in Uttarakhand for the past several days have claimed 28 lives so far.

This time the monsoon has again put Uttarakhand on the path of natural calamity. In Uttarakhand, heavy rains have thrown life out of gear in the last few days. Meteorologists believe that the so-called evolution of mountains is responsible for this. The way mountains are being cut in the name of development for the widening of roads in hilly areas, trees are being cut in the name of big projects, due to which a big crisis has arisen in front of the hilly areas.

Construction of giant tunnels in the mountains, construction of reservoirs to build large power houses and blasting of mountains for tunneling, all these reasons are continuously inviting disaster in the mountainous state. People had not even forgotten the disaster of Joshimath that this time heavy monsoon rains have started showing their fury.

The Char Dham Yatra has been continuously disrupted since May due to unseasonal rains and since the onset of monsoon, more than 300 roads to the Char Dham have been cut off from the link road. According to statistics, this time in Uttarakhand, the monsoon rains have been much more than last year.
