Uttarakhand rain is not the replica of 2013. It is even worse, we have challenged the nature by exploiting it to a maximum level. A heavy amount of greenery has been damaged in the name of development this year. The Hill’s of Uttarakhand were always landslide prone. Without proper backup to the rainy season cutting of the mountains besides roads has been done in a extreme level. This result in land slide and even stone rain in the chardham root. Rishikesh to chamba root NH94 has been badly damaged and the root have been diverted from Mussoorie to avoid losses.Same scenario is there with NH58 which has been blocked several time.

Rispana has caused damages, Drainage system of Uttarakhand’s Capital has been exploited. Encroachment has been there and being vanished by the officials but these needed to be done earlier.
