Judge vows to weed out polluting industrial units
LUDHIANA, Jan 7 — Justice Kuldeep Singh, a former Supreme Court Judge, is known for his historic judgements in cases related to the protection of environment. Now, he has launched a movement against the polluting industrial units of Ludhiana. The focus of the campaign will be on getting these units shifted out of the city. “I am not against industrialisation, but mindless devastation of natural resources cannot be tolerated. Industrialists should behave as responsible citizens.
A dense fog engulfed Ludhiana and its surrounding areas on Sunday morning. Vehicles had to move at a slow speed and with their lights on because of the reduced visibility.
