Corporate Lawyer On Ganga Cleaning

by Abhinav K. Snr. SEO/SMO/Web Promotioner
In 2013, Ganga was rated as second-most contaminated stream on the globe after Citarum  in Indonesia. The review released in a WHO report highlighted the pollution level, showing that Ganga was about 3,000 times of the safe restrict recommended by the WHO for human use. Another study by the Indian Council of Medical Research mentioned that the individuals residing along the bank of river Ganga are prone to different sorts of cancers.

All this occurred despite the governments have been investing crores of rupees under Ganga Action Plan since 1985. A comparison of data collected by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) shows that both bio-chemical demand (BOD) and dissolved oxygen risen dramatically in the last two decades.

"Many environmental scientists claimed that Ganga water is not suitable for drinking, bathing or any other purpose. Supreme Court Bench headed by Justice TS Thakur
questioned the Central government for making delays in the cleaning of the Ganga. The unchecked pollution of river Ganga has evoked sharp criticism by the apex court which has been hearing the case since 1985. The ambitious 'Ganga Action Plan' to clean the river was launched by the then Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1985." - Kislay Pandey - Corporate Lawyer, the Supreme Court of India.

It is impossible for us to forget the unfortunate natural calamity that happened in Uttarakhand in June 2013. The incidence was an alarming sign of the impending catastrophe which can occur at any time if we remain negligent and irresponsible in conserving the mountains. We must understand the significance of mountains as they prevents floods and earth quakes. Besides, mountains are the natural reservoirs of clean water and also affect the weather conditions of our earth.

Use of dangerous substances for farming, thousands of polluting industries on its banks and construction of dams in Uttarakhand are the major causes behind the deplorable condition of river Ganga. Dream of clean and free-flowing Ganga will only remain a dry unless the government makes efforts to change the mind-set of people living along the river.

"To save, clean and beautify the Ganga, some immediate actions are required. Ganga is our national heritage and pride, she is not special for a particular community or society. Therefore, it is the moral and collective responsibility of the all to contribute in the revival of Holy Ganga. Civilians, governments and industries are the three core groups responsible in polluting the Ganga and they all are liable to save and clean it." -  Kislay Pandey - Corporate Lawyer in Delhi, the Supreme Court of India.
