The Congress and the BJP has been trying to get political mileage and playing blame-games on the Uttarakhand flood tragedy.The fight has taken a bitter shape on the social media site twitter,where both the parties seem to be in a tweet war. NDTV’s article on these angry tweets compiled together shows how both the parties of the nation got involved in explanations and arguments on twitter.
Previously, Congress had taken a dig on Modi by calling him a Rambo when the news spread that Modi came and rescued 15000 people from his state who were stuck in the Uttarakhand flood. To this , the BJP had responded by saying –its better to be a Rambo than a Dumbo or a Scambo
Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi flew into Uttarakhand on Monday to survey the rescue and relief operations and spent the night at a base camp. While the BJP has been asking why was Rahul late in visiting the flood hit areas of Uttarakhand, the Congress Spokesperson Renuka Chowdhary said Rahul Gandhi is not a ‘Rambo’.He has gone to survey the flood-hit area as a common citizen. The Rambo word was used targeting Narendra Modi, who had entered the flood-hit area accompanied by bureaucrats and evacuated 15000 people from his state in chartered helicopter and luxury buses.
Well, who would have hated such a real-life Rambo in moments of crises ?
In between the rescue operations , both Congress and BJP has chosen to politically utilize the situation while blaming each other of doing so. Uttarakhand has been hit by heavy flood due to torrential rains, resulting which, thousands of pilgrims and locals are left at the mercy of rescue team.The brutal flow of water has ransacked roads and houses and everything possible in its way.The Kedarnath Temple has been effected a lot.Above 100 are feared dead.Meanwhile,Gujarat CM, Narendra Modi visited the flood hit area on helicopter.Home Minister Union was quick enough to point out,only State CM should do aerial surveys while Congress’ Digvijaya Singh had already criticized Modi’s aerial survey. BJP on the other hand is giving Congress a hard time due to Rahul Gandhi’s absence in yet another crises.
Over 5000 pilgrims in Kedarnath and 15000 in Badrinath are amid heavy flood in Uttarkhand.All in all,60000 people in the state of Uttarakhand remain stranded with over 100 people dead and more feared.The Army is on its rescue operation and the torrential rains which caused the flood have calmed down only recently.
Praying Rain Gods calm down and allow rescue operations bring pilgrims and the state back to normalcy.
