Environmental emergency in Bellandur lake, not even 1 ml of clean water available, NGT informed 14.6.2018 DNA: Top News
 Indiscriminate discharge of untreated sewage into Bengaluru's Bellandur lake has resulted in an "environmental emergency", a committee has told the National Green Tribunal, adding that there is not even one millilitre of clean water in the lake. The NGT-mandated committee said the biggest lake of the beautiful city of Bengaluru had become the largest septic tank of the city due to "sheer callousness and indifference" of the authorities. "According to the material collected, the water holding capacity of Bellandur lake has rapidly shrunk due to indiscriminate dumping of construction and demolition waste, municipal solid waste and due to vast spread of hydrophyte and microphytes in the lake water. Hydrophytes are aquatic plants that grow in or near water and provides cover for fish and other aquatic organisms. "The commission during the inspection was shocked to notice a road that has been constructed on the Varthur lake by dumping construction and demolition waste under the garb of laying a pipeline," ...

You have made Bengaluru's largest lake into the city's biggest septic tank: NGT-formed committee slams K'taka govt 13.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
A special commission that has been set up by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) to inspect Bengaluru’s lakes slammed the Karnataka government saying that it had ‘miserably failed to discharge their obligations to the society and their duties,’ India Today reported. “The biggest lake of the beautiful city of Bengaluru by sheer callousness and indifference of the authorities has become the largest septic tank of the city," the commission stated in its report.  Last February, the Union Ministry for Environment had ordered an inquiry into a fire that had broken out in the garbage strewn around Bellandur lake. Due to several reasons, the main being dumping of construction waste and municipal solid waste, along with the spreads of hydrophytes (underwater plants) and microphytes, the lake’s water holding capacity has reduced. Commission members also pointed out that the storm water drain outlets near the lake were discharging sewage and industrial effluents, which in turn were released into the lake.  The report ...

Speak up Mumbai: Hell holes! Will BMC ever cover open manholes? 11.6.2018 DNA: India
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) faces criticism every year for its negligence which puts citizen's lives at risk. However, the civic body is yet to learn its lesson. Open manholes around the city is one such legacy that reflects the failure of the civic body to fulfil its responsibilities. Open manholes not only pose threat to lives of the citizens, but could also lead to fatal accidents. During August 29 deluge last year, a prominent gastroenterologist from Bombay Hospital, Dr Deepak Amrapurkar died after falling into an open manhole. The BMC had been on the receiving end of consistent flax post the incident. However, investigation revealed that five local residents opened the manhole cover to help recede the rain water and left them unattended, giving a clean chit to BMC employees. This year is no exception. On Friday two motorists tumbled into an open manhole in Matunga. It was the local people who covered the manhole after waiting for BMC to do its duty in vain. The BMC has now ...

CBI, ACB 'randomly picking files': Arvind Kejriwal 10.6.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal levelled fresh allegations against the CBI and the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on Saturday saying they have started random picking of files from the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), of which he is the minister-in-charge, to "somehow frame him in something". In a series of tweets, Kejriwal announced that he will put out in public domain the list of all files sought by the CBI and the ACB, and asked them to either explain the reason or else "apologise to Delhiites for this witch hunting exercise". In September last year, Kejriwal took charge of water — the first portfolio taken by him after he became the chief minister in 2015. Kejriwal heads the DJB also. "CBI n ACB started randomly picking files from DJB. No specific enquiry. Becoz now I am Min-in-charge, their effort is somehow frame me in something (sic). "PM, LG n BJP – If u hv specific info, pl investigate. But don't victimize Delhi's people by paralyzing all depts of Del govt (sic)," Kejriwal tweeted. In another tweet, the ...
