Australian PM Scott Morrison “feels inclined” to cancel his visit to India under media pressure and public anger following the bushfire chaos across the nation.

As it becomes increasingly difficult to rein in the raging bushfire in South Australia, the Australian Prime Minister feels “inclined” to cancel his impending visit to India. The Australian PM Scott Morrison has been facing public backlash and severe criticism over his leadership “absence” as the situations worsened.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had officially invited his Australian counterpart who was due to visit New Delhi from January 13 to 16. But, the Aussie PM Morrison will be cancelling his imminent meeting with PM Modi as the bushfire ‘firenadoes’ have wrecked the millions of acre of pastures and bushland.

PM Modi has expressed his concern for the devastating loss that the calamity has brought upon the continent and offered his support to Australian PM over the telephone.

Australia has suffered huge loss in the aftermath of the spreading forest fire which is yet to be controlled. Thousands of people have been stranded and become homeless overnight as the rich vegetation and habitat of many species got destroyed in the fire.

The Australian military troop has been sent in to evacuate towns across the Victoria coast. The climate change in the Indian Ocean has set ablaze the southern coasts of Australia as the country braces for the impact of mass unprecedented bushfires in its history.
