New Delhi: Janata Dal (United) president Sharad Yadav on Wednesday put the blame on the Center for the sorry state of affairs in flood-ravaged Uttarakhand.

"Help from the government during Uttarakhand floods was delayed. Uttarakhand floods were just a glimpse of the darkness that is our future," said Yadav.

Further while describing India's rich natural resources, Yadav said, "We used to be a country that was environment friendly. But now we have exploited nature too much."

While showing his concern on the increasing atmospheric temperature and highly disturbing climate shift which is causing flood and other natural disasters, Yadav said, "We need to form laws on protecting the Himalayas. Our country depends on the Himalayas. If glaciers melt India will be in trouble."
