On Monday, July 10, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Himachal Pradesh’s Chief Minister Thakur Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu to find out about the casualties and property damage caused by the recent downpour.

The State has been hit hard by floods and heavy rains, causing substantial damage, as stated in the statement from the Chief Minister, who updated him on the situation and asked for generous support from the Central Government in dealing with the natural disaster.


The Governor assured Prime Minister Modi that he was keeping a careful eye on the issue.

According to him, the area has been witnessing nonstop downpours, which have wreaked havoc on infrastructure including roads, water systems, and power grids, among other things. Seventeen people lost their life, and property worth hundreds of crore was wiped out, according to the announcement.

The heavy rains have wrecked havoc on Himachal Pradesh, hurting the lives of many throughout the State, remarked the Chief Minister, adding that the state government was actively involved in giving relief to those impacted by the floods. The stranded people were supplied with necessities, and plans were made to airlift them as soon as the weather permitted.

According to the announcement, CM Sukhu has also thanked the Prime Minister for sending in the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) to help in the rescue efforts.

The Chief Minister of Himachal Pradesh has said that the state would need significant help from the Union Government in order to recover from the disaster’s devastating effects.

He pleaded with the Prime Minister to approve a stimulus package to help the state get back on its feet.

After hearing the Chief Minister’s worries, the Prime Minister reassured him that the Union Government will do all in its power to help them through this difficult time.

Jagat Prakash Nadda, president of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), contacted the state’s chief executive to see the damage and learn more about ongoing relief and rescue efforts.

The rehabilitation process is expected to take a long time, hence the Chief Minister stressed the need of the Union Government declaring the situation as a National catastrophe.
