Shimla: The way in which due to the change in weather, the floods of Beas, Parvati and subsidiary drains in the Kullu valley have started causing loss of life and property, for that the people of the area have drawn the attention of the government to the construction of three alternative tunnels from the Kullu valley.
People say that the governments have not learned any lesson from the floods of 1995. People are facing huge losses due to the destruction of roads during the fruit and vegetable season which starts from the month of July.
Although, during the BJP government, the leaders have been giving speeches to remove the tunnel from under the Geobhujot of Kullu’s Lag valley and from under the Jalodi pass of the Banjar area, but the launch of these two projects has not been done till date.
Now people have started demanding construction of tunnel from Bajaura to Kataula keeping in view the flood tragedy in the valley.
If the government gives priority to the construction of all the three tunnels coming out of Kullu-Bajaura and Banjar, then in the coming time people will not have to wait for traffic due to damage caused by climate change. -hdm
