No threat to Maha from 'Remal' cyclone: Prof Kirankumar Johare

No threat to Maha from 'Remal' cyclone: Prof Kirankumar Johare

Kolhapur, May 26 (UNI) "There is no threat to Maharashtra from 'Remal' cyclone firming in the Bay of Bengal at a distance of more than 1500 km from Maharashtra, therefore farmers should not panic and not believe any rumours on social media and not scare others by spreading rumours", said internationally renowned climate researcher Prof Kiran Kumar Johare.
In a statement Sunday , Prof. Johare said, however, in order to hide the false information of 106 percent monsoon this year, it was possible that dry drought and disappearing rains after changing the monsoon pattern, may be blamed on 'Remal' cyclone.
Prof Johare said on the assumption that 106 per cent of monsoon, even though there was less than 25 percent of water reserves in the state, there was heavy wastage of water by allowing the construction of roads, washing vehicles and others but it was necessary to bravely face the situation without falling prey to the false news of 106 percent strong monsoon.
