Cloudbursts, landfalls and floods in Utterakhand have been severe and many people have died.  Our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and friends!

This is not the first time that such a tragedy has happened. Two years back hundreds of people lost their lives in a similar natural disaster. Now it is repeated.

The Government should immediately arrange rescue operations and  render all help to the suffering people of Utterakhand. It has also to be looked in to whether such disasters can be stopped. BSNL has to ensure that communication services are restored at the earliest, as done earlier.
