Muck pollutes Bonar, Chandaji streams
Bonar (Bandipora), Mar 19: Huge quantity of muck piled up on the banks of Bonar and Chandaji streams near the Power House site at Mantrigam Bandipora is continuously polluting the water, locals alleged.
They said that the district administration has failed to take concrete measures to remove the muck from the Bonar and Chandaji streams.
According to them, Hindustan Construction Company (HCC), which is executing the work on Kishen Ganga Hydroelectric Power Project, is dumping the muck and other garbage on the banks of these streams. “This muck can block the tributaries,” the locals said, adding, Bonar and Chandaji streams, which flows into river Madhumati, if blocked could affect thousands of people.
“We want stern action against those who are depositing the material on the stream banks,” the locals demanded.
“The number of lorries carrying the material towards the stream banks is increasing with each passing day. Besides muck, construction debris is also dumped at the location,” locals complained.
Locals said the complaints on dumping activity were forwarded to the Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah and District Development Commissioner Bandipora last year. “However, nothing substantial was done in this regard,” the residents added.
The people of Bonar, Chandaji and adjoin village have urged the government to direct the executing agency to shift the dumping site from the area.
