At the point when quakes were felt across north India following a seismic tremor in Tajikistan late Friday, Rahul Gandhi was for all intents and purposes communicating with the understudies of the University of Chicago at that point. The Congress chief stayed unflustered and proceeded with the live occasion tranquilly. A video catching the second is broadly being shared via online media.
“Incidentally, I believe there’s a tremor going on,” Gandhi is heard saying on the live Zoom association with antiquarian Dipesh Chakrabarty and the understudies when the quake struck.
He at that point stopped for a couple of moments while responding to an understudy’s inquiry and laughed: “My room is shaking.”
As indicated by the US Geological Survey, an extreme focus tremor . started very nearly 92 km beneath the world’s surface, empowering it to head out to enormous distances. Solid quakes were felt in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and even Delhi. Shakes starting in distant spots are probably not going to cause any harm, as they lose the greater part of their ruinous energy in transit and become seriously debilitated.
Tremors shook Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR) and were felt as far as Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir, continuing for several seconds. There have been no reports of destruction or casualties so far.
Tremors were also reported from Uttarakhand, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. In Srinagar, video footage showed panicked people running out of their houses as the ground shook.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took to Twitter and expressed concern and said he was praying for everyone’s safety.
