Joshimath land sinking | Environmental expert slams NTPC, says town 'brought down' by engineers

While, NTPC had claimed that the tunnel for their hydel project is not passing under Joshimath, Jha in a Twitter post said the Joshimath disaster is the result of aquifer breaches. 

As residents face crisis due to gradual sinking of Joshimath in Uttarakhand, environment expert Vimlendu Jha said blamed NTPC engineers for 'bringing down' the town, adding there is no scope of repair and no reverse gear from the present situation.

While, NTPC had claimed that the tunnel for their hydel project is not passing under Joshimath, Jha in a Twitter post said the Joshimath disaster is the result of aquifer breaches.

Pointing towards the varity of soils, Jha further said not every soil is fit for digging, blasting or moving. Joshimath disaster is the result of puncturing of aquifers by the NTPC engineers, by their tunnel-boring machines, through tunneling under Joshimath, muddy waters seeping out from homes and ground is a testimony of the engineered crime leading to aquifer breaches.
