Uttarkhand - Lootistan of Half Pants
While UP a huge state under floods had demanded Rs.20 crore to Rs.200 last night Lootistan government of Uttarkhand had demanded Rs.21,000 crores.
Encouraged by the warm reception by PMO to the Ugly PM of BJP led delegation that demanded Rs. 5000 crores within hours Lootistan Government passed a resolution in the assembly demanding Rs.25,000 crores.
It is very funny ‘Government of Lootistan’ has sought compensation for ‘Agricultural Land Washed Away’ not crops @ Rs.100,000 per hectare.
Earlier this year it had ordered shut down of all dam projects in the state and is even considering dismantling of Tehri and other operational dams.
Ø Lootistan government demanded over Rs.5 crore per kilometer for repair of road that is perhaps 10 times the normal rate or many times cost of new roads.
Ø Compensation for villages @ Rs.25 crore per village.
Ø Cost of repair of canal seems to be more than cost of new canals.
Ø Repair cost water lines are many times original cost.
Ø It has also demanded compensation for hydro power projects that had been shut down. (There are no thermal plants in Uttarkhund.)

UP battles flood
In Uttar Pradesh too there’s no let-up in the flood situation. The death toll in rain-related incidents has gone up to 256 this season. Swirling waters of its major rivers have inundated 177 villages in 30 districts. The flood situation in the nine districts of Western Uttar Pradesh is grim with road and rail traffic hit. The flood waters have submerged the roads and tracks.
With a grim flood scenario in the state, AICC President Sonia Gandhi, accompanied by Defence Minister A K Antony, undertook an aerial survey of the affected areas including Bareilly , Moradabad and Rampur , officials said.
They also undertook a tour of flood and cloudburst-hit areas of Uttarakhand .
A spokesman of the relief commissioner’s office here said that Bijnore, Rampur and Moradabad were the worst hit places in the state.
The Uttar Pradesh government has already released an additional Rs. 20 crore for flood relief.
