Earlier on Sunday, Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi urged party workers to help authorities in rescue and relief operation.
A glacier burst in the Tapovan-Reni area of Chamoli District of Uttarakhand on Sunday led to massive flooding in Dhauliganga and Alaknanda rivers and damaged houses and the nearby Rishiganga power project.
Around 203 people are missing and 11 dead bodies have been recovered as of now, according to Uttarakhand Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat.
The Uttarakhand Chief Minister has announced an ex-gratia of Rs 4 lakhs each to the kin of those who lost their lives.
On the cause of the disaster, the Chief Minister said experts can explain the reason behind the glacier outburst, adding that the government is focusing on saving the lives of people and the rescue operation.
