Save our rivers

Every day, the condition of our rivers and lakes is getting worse because of indiscriminate grabbing of banks and dumping of waste. That’s why during monsoon, these water reservoirs can’t hold enough water leading to inundation of nearby areas. Unfortunately, despite all efforts in the past years, the results have not been satisfactory. It’s time to take drastic measures to save our rivers and lakes. There should be regular dredging to ensure proper flow of water. The government should also increase monitoring to check encroachment.
