Stinking Durgam Cheruvu Lake gets new bridge 27.4.2017
Hyderabad: The cable bridge over Durgam Cheruvu will run across a highly polluted, shrinking lake. While Rs 184 crore has been sanctioned for the bridge, very little has been done to improve the condition of the lake. The new sewerage treatment plant is dysfunctional and sewerage from surrounding colonies flows into the lake. Once, one of the largest lakes in the Cyberabad area, it is now filled with stagnating garbage and covered with water hyacinth. “The catchment area of the lake and the surrounding area has been totally encroached upon. One estimate reveals over 100 million litres of sewerage flows into the Durgam Cheruvu every day,” says Lubna Sarwath of Save Our Urban Lakes, a city-based lake protection organisation. Changing lake: Google image from the year 2016 shows massive construction and encroachments around the lake. She says aquatic life has almost disappeared. The water spread area has been shrinking over the years and the benefits of the 5 MLD sewage treatment plant of HMDA in the lake ...

Cleanliness ‘tamasha’ ahead of PM’s visit 27.4.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Shimla, April 26 A cleanliness mania of sorts has gripped the state capital Shimla ahead of the visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the state capital Shimla tomorrow. BJP leaders wielding brooms and sweeping the streets and roads is a common site here. The Swachh Bharat Mission was launched by the Prime minister on October 2, 2014. BJP leaders have now joined the mission, showing their concern for cleanliness on the eve of the Prime Minister’s visit. The Facebook is full of photographs of BJP leaders and workers carrying brooms, cleaning streets and posing for photographs. This has bemused the locals who are mocking at this ‘tamasha’. The cleanliness drive is confined only to selected locations and places and huge nallah below Combermere bridge on the Mall Road in the heart of the city is full of garbage. It has not caught the eye of BJP workers and no attempt was made to clean the nallah which becomes a fertile ground for mosquitoes during summers. The BJP leaders, who have ...

CHENNAI: The National Green Tribunal Chennai has taken a suo motu case against encroachments in Munnar and slapped notices on the Idukki district collector, Forest-Environment Secretary, State Pollution Control Board chairman, Forest Principal Chief Conservator, and Munnar Municipal Commissioner. The case will be considered on May 3. The tribunal’s notices were based on media reports about illegal constructions and mining, which upset the natural ecosystem and mountains of the once pristine hill station. Reports also exposed rampant pollution and resorts constructed in blatant violation of the environmental law. Water resources have been also filled up. Private parties, government employees and politicians had encro-ached land, say media reports. The district revenue authorities recently tried to stem the rot but the Government did not appreciate the officials’ stance. As a result, the anti-encroachment drive has been halted in Munnar. Union Minister C.R. Chaudhary recently visited the encroached land in ...

In Govandi, ragpickers stealing and selling used and unsafe injections 26.4.2017 mid-day.com
Vitthal Lokare A Congress corporator has alleged that biomedical waste isn't being disposed of properly in Govandi, putting residents at high risk of infections. Raising the issue in the improvement committee meeting, Govandi's Congress corporator Vitthal Lokare on Tuesday claimed that the contractor, who was tasked with the responsibility of disposing of biomedical waste, was allowing the waste to rot at the site. "In Govandi, there is a plot where biomedical waste is supposed to be disposed of scientifically. Waste like syringes, empty saline drips and body parts - taken out after operations, are dumped here daily. The contractor had been asked to dispose of the waste by incineration, so that any kind of reuse could be avoided," said Lokare. He added, "However, the disposal is not done properly and many rag-pickers and other anti-social elements steal the material and sell it again. This is violation of biomedical waste disposal norms and it could raise serious health concerns in the locality." Lokare ...
