Uttarakhand Glacier Burst Not Linked To Char Dham Road Project : Centre To SC
Centre's Defence ministry has sought time from the Supreme Court to prove that recent glacier burst in Uttarakhand's Chamoli is not linked to road-widening project in Char Dham. Earlier, SC's expert panel member Ravi Chopra had argued a connection between the two. However, the three-judge bench has granted the centre two weeks to come up with an answer. Deemed strategically important, the Char Dham is undergoing construction of 10-metre-wide highway.
