Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today expressed unhappiness over slow pace of conservation work of Wullar, Asia's largest fresh water lake, and asked the officials to deploy more men and machinery to finish the work within deadline.

Desilting effort launched under the comprehensive Wullar Conservation and Management Plan (WCMP) needs greater impetus to increase the water holding capacity of the lake, she said during a review meeting of Wullar Conservation and Management Authority (WUCMA) here.

"The ongoing conservation and protection measures for eco- restoration of Wullar Lake, its feeder channels, associated wetlands and marshes should gain momentum in view of the devastating floods that struck Kashmir in September 2014," Mehbooba said.
