Uttarakhand glacier burst: What is Rishi Ganga Tapovan Hydro Power Project?
The breaking of a glacier in the Dhauli Ganga Valley of Joshimath, Uttarakhand has caused devastation. The glacier rupture has created a flood-like situation.
While the teams of Army, Air Force, NDRF, ITBP, and SDRF are working
With the local administration in relief and rescue work, there is a possibility of 100-150 casualties.
Till now the bodies of 10 people have been recovered,
while the sage Ganga Power Project has suffered a great loss due to this tragedy,
this tragedy has completely destroyed the entire project.
Actually, a power generation project is going on in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, named as Rishi Ganga Power Project.
The special thing is that this project is not a government but a private one,
which has been working for the last 10 years.
There was a lot of controversy about this, but still, the work of producing electricity started here.
63520 MWh power generation target
Under this project, 63520 MWh power generation is targeted.
It is known that the sage Ganga river joins the Dhauli Ganga valley and that is why today when the glacier broke,
the level of the sage Ganga river also increased and the victims of the sudden floods became laborers of the Rishi Ganga river project.
