It’s curtains for town project conceived by GLADA 16.12.2017 The Tribune
Kuldip Bhatia Ludhiana, December 15 Bowing to prolonged agitation by the employees of two power corporations and pressure of trade unions of the power utility, the Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL) has taken a policy decision not to hand over 32 acre land under its possession in Ludhiana to the Greater Ludhiana Area Development Authority (GLADA) for commercial purposes under the ‘Down Town’ project.

NGT bans sale of plastic items along Ganga belt from Haridwar up to Rishikesh 15.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday announced that it would be imposing a ban on the sale, purchase and storage of plastic items such as bags, plates, spoons, etc along river Ganga in Haridwar’s Hari Ki Puri Rishikesh up to areas in Uttarkashi. As per an ANI report, a Rs 5,000 fine will be imposed on violators. On March 30, the chairperson had directed that a meeting be held after the UP government informed the Tribunal about its willingness to discuss the scenario of shifting tanneries outside Kanpur.

A year after assuming office, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged his ministerial colleagues and  three chief ministers to adopt an "uncompromising mission-mode approach" to halt pollution of River Ganga.

Tribune News Service Ropar, December 14 Drinking water supply to residents of 45 villages in the Nurpur Bedi block remains a distant dream even as a project in this regard started in November 2013.

Cong, SAD-BJP go all out to woo voters 13.12.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Patiala, December 12 Ahead of the MC poll, Congress and SAD-BJP candidates are trying hard to woo voters.  The Congress claims that despite remaining in power for 10 years, the SAD-BJP combine failed to start big projects while the SAD-BJP are trying hard to convince voters that these projects can be completed by their party only. The Patiala Municipal Corporation (MC) during the last SAD-BJP rule has failed to start many big projects, including setting up of the solid waste management plant, shifting of dairies from the city to the outskirts of the district and the canal-based water treatment plant. All projects are hanging fire ever since the SAD-BJP General House took over the reigns of the Patiala MC in 2007. Notwithstanding the fact that the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) authorities had written one dozen letters to the Patiala civic authorities for setting up of the solid waste management plant, the civic body failed to initiate work. At present, 240-MT waste per day is ...
