Congress MLA threatens 'jal samadhi' in Bhadar river due to pollution by dyeing units
A Congress MLA today threatened to take "jal samadhi" in Bhadar River in Gujarat's Rajkot district claiming that textile dyeing units were polluting it with untreated effluents.
In his memorandum submitted to them, Vasoya said that untreated toxic waste from textile dyeing units in Jetpur town was being released into Bhadar river which in turn was also polluting the Bhadar-2 Dam.
"The Bhadar-2 dam supplies drinking water to Dhoraji.
Neither the Rajkot collector nor the officials of Gujarat Pollution Control Board have taken cognizance of this issue despite repeated reminders. If no action is taken now, I will take jal samadhi in the river on August 11," Vasoya claimed.
