Assuring all help to people in the calamity-hit Uttarakhand, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) today appealed to different organisations to come forward to provide succour to flashflood victims in the hill state.

"What has happened in Uttarakhand has the proportions of a national tragedy. I appeal to all organisations to offer whatever help they can to the affected people," VHP's international working president Pravin Togadia, who was here to review steps being taken by the organisation workers to provide relief to the victims, told reporters here.

He said he will soon launch a countrywide campaign to seek the help of different organisations in rehabilitating people, who have lost everything they had in the tragedy.

The VHP will provide a list of people really in need of help to the organisations willing to assist in the relief and rehabilitation of disaster victims in the state, he said.

Togadia also advised the state government to press into service more helicopters to speed up the process of evacuating people.
