Rajnath suspects enemies behind rise of natural disasters in border states

Expressing concern over the rising number of natural disasters in some border states and union territories, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh Friday said there is a need for a detailed study to find out if India’s adversaries are behind it.

Climate change is no longer just a weather-related phenomenon but is also linked to national security, he said

Addressing a gathering in the Dhak village near Joshimath in Uttarakhand after inaugurating 35 BRO infrastructure projects, Singh noted that the frequency of natural disasters has risen in some states and union territories like Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim and Ladakh.

“Experts believe it is linked with climate change. But I think a study needs to be conducted to find if there is also a role of our adversaries in it,” Singh said, without naming any country.

The rise in the frequency of natural disasters in these states and union territories has been taken seriously by the defence ministry, he said.

“We feel the subject deserves a detailed study for which the help of friendly countries can also be taken if needed,” he said.
