Curbing pollution in rivers flowing into Rajasthan from Punjab and appointing a full-time tribal development commissioner for proper implementation of various projects are among the important matters the authorities in Rajasthan need to work on, outgoing governor Margaret Alva said.


Alva, who completed her tenure as the Rajasthan governor on Tuesday, said she enjoyed her stay here and worked as much she could in the state's interest and to protect the Constitution.

Talking to reporters at Raj Bhawan, she expressed grave concern over polluted water flowing into the Indira Gandhi Canal from Punjab and said she had written letters to the authorities concerned, including Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, to address the issue.

"This is really a serious issue which needs to be sorted by the chief ministers of Rajasthan and Punjab. The water is so much polluted that even an animal cannot drink it," she said.
