He said that there was a difference between the words and actions of BJP and they did not support the resolution brought in the Assembly on a special package from the centre. If the opposition's intentions were clear, it would have supported the resolution of declaring it a national disaster, he reiterated.

Chief Parliamentary Secretary, Sundar Singh Thakur said that the Chief Minister worked at ground zero during the disaster. He had come to Kullu district for a few hours, but after considering the seriousness of the disaster, he stayed here for three days and expedited the rescue and relief operations and provided strong leadership.
