Govt to bring bill for regulating brick kilns
Srinagar, Oct 6: Jammu and Kashmir government will bring a bill in the legislative assembly for covering the operations of brick kilns in the state under a comprehensive policy, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah said today.
"A Bill is being introduced in the Lower House to bring the operation of brick kilns in the state under a comprehensive policy," Omar said.
Omar said haphazard growth and unscientific establishment of brick kilns have threatened environment.
He said a "lot of damage is also being caused to the soil by this operation" and a policy is required to control the operation of brick kilns in the State.
"We cannot stop operation of brick kilns as we require bricks for construction. However, a scientific approach and a well-knit policy for control and operation of brick klins is the need of the hour to ensure environmental safeguards," he said.
