Uttarakhand govt poorly managed rescue operations, says Ramdev
Yog guru Baba Ramdev has criticized the political parties for going into war with each other to take the credit of rescuing victims of devastating Uttarakhand floods. He slammed the government of Uttarakhand for poorly managing the rescue operations in the state that led to death of thousands of pilgrims and the local residents.

Baba Ramdev said that despite availability of resources and facilities, the state government failed to supply food and water to the victims.

“There is a war going on between the political parties to take credit for the rescue operations in Uttarakhand. The dead bodies were burnt like garbage. Days after the disaster, the CM's son flew to foreign country for enjoyment,” said Ramdev.

Ramdev also took a dig at the Congress scion Rahul Gandhi and said that when there was large scale devastation in Uttarakhand, Gandhi was enjoying abroad.

“The one who is seeing dream of becoming the PM of this country was also abroad enjoying with his friends. I had told this several times that the UPA's departure will be good for the nation,” added Ramdev.

Incessant rains and cloud burst brought massive floods in Uttrakhand on June 17 and caused a huge destruction mainly in three districts - Uttarkashi, Chamoli and Rudraprayag. The state was hit by floods when the famous Chardham Yatra was going on in the state. Thousands of people including both the pilgrims and the local residents have died.

Around one lakh pilgrims got stuck at various places in the worst impacted three districts. Kedarnath Valley got washed away entirely causing hundreds of deaths. Pilgrims also died in Badrinath and Rambara areas.

The central government deployed Army, ITBP, NDRF and Indian Air Force in the massive rescue operation which is still going on. The rescuers have transported more than a lakh people to the safer places. The rescue teams are now focusing on helping the local residents in this hilly state.
