Tribune News Service Jammu, July 8 The Baglihar hydropower project continues to remain a cause for concern for the residents of Doda district with the erosion of loose soil on both sides of the reservoir and the threat of landslides looming large over the populace. Minor landslides continue to hit the areas on both sides of the reservoir as no steps have been initiated to address the issue.

Tribune News Service Palwal, July 8 Alleging that a land mafia engaged in carving illegal residential plots and colonies is active in Palwal district, local MLA Karan Singh Dalal has demanded a high-level probe into the matter.
