s acres of forest land in Uttarakhand were gutted in the widespread forest fire, state minister Harak Singh Rawat came up with a solution to tackle the crisis — the BJP leader decided to fan away the flames with a bush.
Harak Singh Rawat indeed attempted to douse a portion of the forest fire using a bush while others around him filmed him in action.
Soon, a 30-second clip showing Rawat fanning the fire went viral. While some netizens appreciated him for the initiative, others didn’t escape a chance to take a dig at him.
As many as 414 forest fires have been reported from Uttarakhand in April so far while 645.3 hectares of forests have been destroyed. Nainital, Almora, Tehri and Pauri districts are the worst hit by forest fires, an official said on Tuesday.
IAF helicopters doused forest fires at three places in Uttarakhand on Tuesday even as more broke out at 75 new spots, destroying 105.85 hectares of green cover in the state, officials as saying.
