Passage across Yamuna river destroyed

Tribune News Service

Yamunanagar, May 5

A team of the Yamunanagar administration led by Bilaspur SDM Girish Kumar destroyed one of the five makeshift passages constructed across the Yamuna.

“We destroyed the makeshift passage constructed across the Yamuna in Kanalsi village on Sunday and the rest would be destroyed soon,” said Girish Kumar. In gross violation of NGT guidelines and Punjab and Haryana High Court ruling, five makeshift passages were constructed using cement pipes, sand bags and soil. These passages posed a threat of diversion of the Yamuna and caused environmental damage. Sources said the passages largely facilitated the operation of mining contractors.
