This is in reference to article Save Doodh Ganga by Dr Raja Muzaffar published in the Daily Excelsior. It is a mater of grave concern that more than a half million population in Srinagar city is supplied unclean water from Doodh Ganga filtration plant. Authorities must get the matter probed and immediate measures must be taken to clean up Doodh Ganga so that no dirt (solid waste , sewerage) contaminates the water which is supplied to a huge population.
All the bathrooms , lavatories , kitchen outlets should be sealed by authorities that are located on the banks of this river in Budgam . This river is not only a source of drinking water but is source of irrigation as well. The contaminated water in addition of causing serious health hazards also destroys agricultural fields
