Environmentalist Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has said that untreated sewage disposal into the defence drain at Goraya must be stopped immediately.


He lauded the plan by several villages to form a joint action committee to stop water pollution. Sang Dhesian, Roorka Kalan, Bundala, Jandiala and several other villages had formed such a committee recently.

“My wholehearted support is with the people. Drainage authorities must consider the fact that drains are there to ensure flow of rainwater. They are releasing untreated water into the drain. This is illegal,” he said.

“We would also raise this issue with the Punjab Pollution Control Board. The guilty should be punished.”
