NGT asks state to clear buffer zone of lakes 4.5.2016 deccanherald.com
In a landmark judgment, the Principal Bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT), New Delhi, directed the Karnataka government to demolish all existing construction falling within buffer zones of lakes and Rajakaluves (feeder canals of lakes) in Bengaluru. The bench directed the government to increase the buffer zones and ensure that no further construction takes place in such areas. The buffer zone of lakes has been enhanced from 30 metres to 75 metres. The revised buffer zone for the Rajakaluves is 50 metres, 35 metres and 25 metres for primary, secondary and tertiary canals respectively. The NGT also ordered that the buffer zone around Rajakaluves should be measured from the edge and not from the middle.

With 16.3 crore children being affected due to drought in ten states, Nobel laureate Kailash Satyarthi has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declare drought a national emergency and make children a top priority in relief and rehabilitation work. Bachpan Bachao Andolan, an NGO led by Satyarthi, has found that the practice of 'devdasi', dedication of young girls to gods and goddesses, is catching up fast in drought affected states like Telangana, Maharashtra, and Karnataka. Also, there are many cases of child marriage, child labour, and kidnapping of children. "More than half of the total child marriage and child labour in India are from the 10 drought affected states and is speculated to aggravate further due to severe drought conditions," he told reporters here.
