Allahabad: Waste water at Magh Mela pollutes Ganga

ALLAHABAD: Waste water generated at the Magh Mela is again diverted into the Ganga and Yamuna. Rajendra Paliwal, president of Prayag Dharam Sangh has handed over a memorandum to the district magistrate and demanded remedial action.

He said that Jal Nigam is entrusted with the work of laying water pipelines in the mela area. All the agencies involved in the work, including Jal Nigam and district administration are aware of the problem but no steps have been taken.

He said that though plans have been made to make the Ganga pollution-free but the reality is that the waste water from the Mela area itself is being diverted in the river.
