Victims protesting against permanent displacement and rehabilitation
Joshimath: The recent landslide in Joshimath has been causing panic among the locals, as the cracks in the region continue to widen. With the pilgrimage to Badrinath Dham scheduled to start from 27th April and the pilgrimage to Hemkund Sahib from 20th May, concerns have arisen about the safety of the yatra route that passes through the cracked Joshimath. The administration is making all necessary arrangements to ensure the safety of the pilgrims, but the Joshimath Bachao Sangharsh Samiti has been protesting against the lack of permanent displacement and rehabilitation for the victims of the disaster.
The Joshimath Bachao Sangharsh Samiti has warned that if their demands are not met by April 27, they will block the road in Joshimath, causing significant problems for the pilgrims traveling to Badrinath Dham. The administration is now caught in a difficult situation as it tries to balance the demands of the protesters with the safety and convenience of the pilgrims.
The recent landslide in Joshimath highlights the need for proper disaster management planning in the region. The administration needs to take immediate steps to ensure the safety of the locals and the pilgrims traveling to Badrinath Dham and Hemkund Sahib. This can be done by conducting regular inspections of the region to identify potential risks and taking preventive measures to mitigate them.
Moreover, the government needs to invest in infrastructure development in the region, including building safe roads and bridges, constructing shelters for pilgrims, and setting up emergency medical facilities. These measures will not only enhance the safety of the pilgrims but also boost the tourism industry in the region.
