Cholera-like symptom spreads in Varthur labour sheds, epidemic claims three lives 31.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Panic swept the labour sheds at Belagere in Varthur where a cholera-like epidemic has claimed the lives of three and left 19 ill.

The makeshift sheds house 2,500 construction labourers, who work at the upcoming luxury residential complex Sobha Dream Acres at Varthur. Jithendra (25), Bandhu Naik (57) and Srikanth Sahu (20) - the three migrant workers from West Bengal, Odisha and Assam - died in the sheds, while Kanhaiya (22) and Akku (21) are in a critical condition in the ICU.

Terming solid waste management as a "huge problem" for the country, the Supreme Court has said that there was no shortage of funds under Swachh Bharat Mission but there was "lack" of willingness on the part of states to take positive steps in this regard. The apex court noted the submissions of the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change (MoEF) that there was a total outlay of Rs 36,829 crore under the mission out of which Rs 7,424 crore was made available by the Centre. A bench of justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta said that the issue pertaining to solid waste management was needed to be looked into with all due concern and seriousness by the state governments, particularly in context of Swachh Bharat Mission.

"It is stated in the affidavit of the MoEF that the Government of India has launched a Swachh Bharat Mission for which there is a total outlay of Rs 36,829 crore out of which Rs 7,424 ...
