Allahabad: The Uttar Pradesh government along with the Mathura Virndawan Development Authority and Nagar Mahapalika Parishad of Mathura have been directed by the Allahabad High Court to file their replies regarding the PIL filed alleging increasing pollution in river Ganga at Mathura Vrindawan due to digging of ghats for laying down sewage pipeline.

What the PIL states:

  • The Public Interest Litigation (PIL), filed by Mahant Madhumangal Saran Das alleged that the nature of ghats is being altered by laying down pipelines regardless of the instructions issued by the Archeological Survey of India (ASI). The ASI had issued clear directions that the present nature of ghats at Yamuna would not be altered, but ignoring this directive the pipelines are being laid, the PIL states.

  • It has further been alleged that dirty water is being flown into the river Yamuna at Mathura Vrindawan, which is continuously increasing pollution level of Yamuna. The PIL stated, there are two Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) in Mathura but despite this the dirty water is being directly flown into river Yamuna.
  • It has also been alleged that due to these arbitrary schemes, the river Yamuna is going far away from the ghats and losing its beauty.

A division bench comprising of Chief Justice Dilip Babasaheb Bhosale and Justice Yashwant Varma fixed November 28, 2016 as the next date of hearing of this PIL.
