That’s why landslides happen
According to the scientists of Wadia Institute, after the snowfall in the Himalayan regions, when the snow melts in the summer, it softens the rocks and soil. Due to the high gravitational force on the slopes in the high Himalayan regions, rocks and soil start to slide down. This causes landslides. Not only this, according to scientists, due to climate change, too much rain is also causing landslides in all the mountainous states of the country including Uttarakhand in a short time. According to scientists, all the development work, including construction of roads indiscriminately, deforestation and leakage of water from reservoirs are proving to be a major reason for landslides in all the Himalayan states of the country including Uttarakhand.
