Uttarkashi Tunnel Collapse We Ignored Nature and Science; Evaded Our Own Laws

The Silkyara Tunnel collapse is a tragedy that has trapped 41 workers. The collapse is a result of the government’s contempt for nature, brazen disregard for science, and evasion of environmental laws. The government has a history of ignoring warnings about the dangers of tunnelling in the Himalayas. The government has also been accused of evading environmental laws in order to speed up construction projects. The collapse is a wake-up call for the government to take environmental concerns seriously and to hold those responsible for the collapse accountable. By Coshorts
