#Joshimath One of the major cause of the destruction of this holy place is the construction of large hotels and the widespread use of cement. Natural sources of water have been diverted, and there are no drainage facilities available. The government wants revenue from our hills
by promotion tourism,but at the very least, they can frame environmentally friendly policies before introducing these large projects that is/will change the entire geography of the Himalayas .It's always about tourist and not locals
It is not a case of development versus destruction; development is necessary, but it must be done in a sustainable manner. Experts have been talking about sustainable development for a long time, now the time has come to put it into practise.

China uses river #water as a weapon. Some analysts have predicted even wars or war like situations resulting from the damming and diversion of Tibetan rivers. For 2 billion people, the rivers flowing from #Tibet constitute the lifeline. 🏔️🥤

Diversion of waters from Nepalese rivers would directly affect the Ganga - the soul of the people living in #India and #Nepal.😟

China has so far not signed any bilateral treaty in regard to #water resources? 🏔️🛶
