“Uttarakhand-2” is how J&K CM, Omar Abdullah had described this. By all accounts the devastation that has visited the valley and Jammu is unprecedented both in scale and magnitude.
A TRAGIC OPPORTUNITY ENCASHED
Despite arguable shortcomings the GoI seems, by all fair accounts, to have, with the effective use of our professionally trained armed forces, acquitted itself satisfactorily, in rescuing flood ravaged people and in reaching out to them with relief.
Curiously, though, the state government seems to have failed in its duty and also missed the bus. The consequences could be disastrous for the NC and the Congress at the hustings soon to come.
If it was politics, one must admit, this one was a damn good one!
