New Delhi, June 26 (IANS) BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Tarun Vijay Wednesday said that India should seek expertise from friendly countries in planning and executing reconstruction work in flood-devastated Uttarakhand.
“We should not feel shy to seek expert help from friendly countries like Japan, Germany and Israel to have the gigantic work planned and started competently,” said a statement issued on behalf of Vijay, an MP from Uttarakhand.
Vijay urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh that the centre should undertake reconstruction of the Uttarakhand and set up a Group of Ministers to ensure that it is taken in right earnest.
He said that the state government and Border Roads Organisation (BRO) lacked both resources and the expertise in carrying out reconstruction work.
The statement said that Vijay had spoken to the prime minister and Cabinet Secretary Ajit Seth about the ongoing rescue and relief operations and commencing reconstruction work before winter sets in Uttarakhand.
