Upendra Bharti | HENB | New Delhi | Jan 10, 2023:: The Supreme Court on Tuesday agreed to examine a plea on January 16, seeking its intervention to declare the crisis in Uttarakhand’s Joshimath as a national disaster. A bench headed by Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachud declined to list the plea for urgent hearing saying that everything important should not come to it directly.
“There are democratically elected institutions to look into it. Everything important should not come to us. We will list it on January 16,” the CJI said.
The plea was mentioned by senior advocate Parmeshwar Nath Mishra, appearing for Swami Saraswati.
Saraswati has contended that the incident has occurred due to large-scale industrialisation and sought immediate financial assistance and compensation to the people of Uttarakhand.
The plea has also sought direction to the National Disaster Management Authority to actively support the residents of Joshimath in this challenging time.
“No development is needed at the cost of human life and their ecosystem and if any such thing is to happen, then it is the duty of the State and Union government to stop the same immediately at war level,” the plea of the Seer said.
Joshimath, the gateway to famous pilgrimage sites like Badrinath and Hemkund Sahib and international skiing destination Auli, is facing a major challenge due to land subsidence.
Joshimath is sinking gradually with huge cracks developing in houses, roads and fields there. Many houses have suffered subsidence, locals said.
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami has ordered immediate evacuation of 600 families living in houses at risk.
The number of subsidence-affected homes rose to 678 while 27 more families were evacuated to safety, a bulletin from the Disaster Management Authority in Chamoli said, adding so far 82 families have been shifted to safe locations in the town.
Chief Secretary S S Sandhu held a meeting with officials at the state secretariat to review the situation in Joshimath and asked them to speed up the evacuation exercise to ensure the safety of residents as “every minute is important”.
The district administration has put red cross marks on more than 200 houses in the sinking town that are unsafe for living. It asked their occupants to either shift to the temporary relief centres or rented accommodation for which each family get assistance of Rs 4000 per month for the next six months from the state government.
As such The Dhami Govt of BJP will spend only Rs 24000/- per family in next six moths while each affected family lost their houses worth lakhs of rupees due the reckless developmental works by the Govt at the cost of endangering human life and eco-system. What a beautiful picturesque of Modi’s idea of Saavka Saath – Saavka Vikash”.
