The celebrated weatherman of Kashmir Sonam Lotus had trashed the reports about imminent spell of 12-day rainfall in July, next month, as “baseless”.
Speaking to Kashmir Life, Director Metrological Department said that it is totally unethical on the part of a section of media to report such counterfeit news stories and attribute it to his name.
“We can only predict the forecast of 10 days with accuracy,” he said, sounding furious.
He said that the online forecasting portals such as Accuweather.com are not completely reliable.
Earlier a section of media reported, “Director of the local Meteorological department, Sonam Lotus… said continuous rains for 12 days could not be ruled out but unless the Meteorological department was pretty sure, it could not raise alarm.”
“This is baseless story,” Lotus said. “It has given rise to unnecessary fear among the people. I strongly condemn this type of lazy journalism.”
