JAMMU: The Mayor Rajinder Sharma on Friday said that his office is very much aware that 18 Nallahs fall in River Tawi and the work for the corrective measures in this regard has already been planned.
Addressing a thanks giving press conference the Mayor expressed gratitude to the people Jammu for showing awareness in avoiding polythene while immersing holy Saak on culmination of auspicious Navratras and immersing the same in waters of Ranbir Canal rather than in Tawi.
“This shows that people of Jammu have attained an awareness of high quality which will now result in clean and green Jammu and pollution free Tawi River,” Sharma said.
He informed that in all the 18 Ghats on Ranbir Canal JMC personnel were deputed to collect poly-bags, separated Chunris and flowers from Saak and volunteers of NSS have also played a good role in making the people aware during these days.
“People of Jammu have again proved that be it cultural issue, political issue or anything else, they are the ultimate pioneers with positive attitude which is good for the society,” the Mayor stated.
He said that he is leading 15 lakh people of Jammu and what these people want he is ensuring.
“This is just a beginning and after this we will work on solid waste management and complete ban on polythene apart from preserving water bodies as these are being reduced and are getting polluted,” the Mayor further said adding that a marathon and convention for this will be there soon which will have the same objective as was of G20 summit ‘Environment and Climate Change’.
The 500 NSS volunteers who cooperated in these programmes shall further aware students in schools and colleges on harms of using polythene bags. He said that the waste waters of 18 Nallahs will be carried in pipes to low lying areas like Kukriyal, Tatryal where filtration plant shall be made and the water after processing shall be allowed to fields and waste as manure shall fertile agri-fields that will further lead to benefits even after safeguarding the Tawi River.
