Prof T V Ramachandra of IISc's Centre for Ecological Sciences, who is also a member of the committee, said, "I visited the site with my students and found that what they claimed and what is on ground are two different things. They are removing the silt from Yemalur side where there is thick vegetation. "They should have started working from Iblur side where the weeds are fresh. Getting into water and cleaning the water body will be faster and easier. This will also show people that work is happening on the ground.
