The valedictory function of the festival will be held tomorrow in which GOC Delta Force will be the chief guest.
Meanwhile, Prof G M Bhat, Rector Bhaderwah Campus in his lecture on disaster management today said that people of Jammu and Kashmir need not to get panicky on speculations being made by some people about an earthquake of magnitude 8+ or 9 is going to hit the area in the near future.
Prof Bhat said that it is universally admitted fact that at the present state of knowledge about seismcity, no scientist is in a position to predict future earthquakes in any part of the world. Scientifically there is no reason to claim that an earthquake of magnitude 8+ or 9 is going to hit the area in the near future. He said, people should not heed to rumours and there is no need to get panicky.
Prof G M Bhat said that we should bear in mind that Jammu and Kashmir falls within the seismic zones 4 and 5 (high risk zones) and should build earthquake resistant building structures, learn (Do’s and Don’ts) during an event of earthquake, construct the traditional building structures (Daggi Dewari and Taq system), etc, analyze soil type before construction and do not build structures on soft soil.
