Himachal HC orders penal action against illegal Muck Dumping in Govind Sagar Lake

Himachal HC orders penal action against illegal Muck Dumping in Govind Sagar Lake

Shimla, June 21 (UNI) At a time when entire north-west India is facing the worst ever water crisis, authorities, both states, and centres are involved in creating water pollution as they are dumping tones of construction muck into water bodies, rivers, and water dams, feeding the supply of water for human consumption.
A recent order available on the Himachal Pradesh High Court website reveals a few severe violations of environmental laws by state authorities, underscoring a failure to uphold constitutional and legal responsibilities.
The Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice M.S. Ramachandra Rao and Justice Satyen Vaidya, issued this directive in response to a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Advocate Umesh Kanwar.
