Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed anguish over the death of 34 people due to heavy rainfall in Uttarakhand and said rescue operations are underway after landslides and flash floods engulfed several structures in the hill state.

“I am anguished by the loss of lives due to heavy rainfall in parts of Uttarakhand. May the injured recover soon. Rescue operations are underway to help those affected. I pray for everyone’s safety and well-being,” PM Modi tweeted.

“Prime Minister and Home Minister have been briefed on the situation. Houses, bridges etc. have been damaged. Three (Army) helicopters to be deployed for rescue operations,” Mr Dhami was quoted by news agency ANI.
