  • Declared a natural calamity affected area throughout all of Himachal

The mayhem brought on by the monsoon rains was to be classified as a state disaster, according to chief minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu, who claimed that the union government was dragging its feet on the need to classify it as a national disaster.

According to principal secretary for revenue Onkar Chand Sharma, the Himachal Pradesh government designated the widespread destruction brought on by the monsoon rains a “state disaster” on Friday.

The mayhem brought on by the monsoon rains will now be classified as a state disaster, as opposed to a national disaster, as stated earlier in the day by chief minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu.

During the current monsoon season, Himachal Pradesh has experienced unparalleled loss of human life as well as massive destruction, damages, and loss to both public and private property. Incessant rains have severely damaged the entire state, causing floods, cloudbursts, landslides, and slope failure, which have caused a huge loss of life and property.

There have been thousands of damaged or destroyed homes. Unprecedented amounts of crops and agricultural land have been lost. With the aid of the Indian Air Force, Army, NDRF, SDRF, police, home guards, fire services, and neighborhood volunteers, thousands of visitors and locals who were stuck had to be rescued. The state, district, and local road networks, as well as the nation’s roads, have both been seriously damaged and destroyed. Numerous bridges were destroyed or severely damaged, making it difficult to connect areas and conduct rescue operations. Unusually high amounts of precipitation have caused a number of problems that have affected state residents’ daily lives.
