This is to be noted that Himachal Pradesh has been witnessing several landslides due to incessant rainfall in the last few weeks. On July 30, a massive portion of a mountainside had also crashed and destroyed a 300-metre stretch of the road to Paonta Sahib in the Sirmaur district. 

Earlier on August 4, Jal Shakti Minister Mahender Singh Thakur informed the state Assembly that a total of 218 people have died and 12 are missing in Himachal Pradesh in the last three weeks this monsoon season.

Replying to a discussion on climate change on the third day of the ongoing monsoon session, Thakur stated that Himachal Pradesh has suffered a total loss of Rs 451.56 crore due to damaged roads, water lines and power transmission since June 13.
