Cleaning Yamuna is now in mission mode. Command has been taken over by Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena. While chairing the first meeting of the powerful committee formed by the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Saturday, the LG issued clear instructions to officials to adhere to the timelines.

The neglected hunting plan should now have hit its stride. Respond quickly to decisions without breaking deadlines. Any failure on the part of the officials will not be accepted.

The lieutenant governor took stock of the status of water quality in Yamuna and various drains in the city and noted the status and deficiencies of sewage treatment plants (STPS) and community sewage treatment plants (CETPS) during a meeting with officials. After an inventory of the past activities, a concrete action plan for the future was discussed.

The meeting was attended by senior officials from the Government of India and the Delhi Government. It was attended by Chief Secretary, Special Secretary, Ministry of Jal Shakti, Director General (NMSCG), Extra Secretary, Department of External Affairs, DPCC Chairman, MCD Commissioner, CEO of Delhi Jal Board, among others.

MP inspected the ponds of Wazirabad which were being revived

MP Manoj Tiwari, MP for North East Delhi, inspected work to revive dead ponds under the Yamuna Rejuvenation Scheme. Delhi Jal Board is developing them for around 35 crores. The dirty water from Jahangirpuri drain will be filled with 11 ponds created here by treating it with STP. It is being developed as a tourist destination by developing greenery on its banks.
