The Kolhapur Municipality has no moral right to claim that Shri Ganesh murtis cause pollution – Kiran Duse, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti

Rs 2.2 crore fine slapped on Kolhapur Municipal Corporation over Panchaganga river pollution case

Kolhapur : The Pollution Control Board has slapped a Rs 2.2 crore fine on the Kolhapur Municipal Corporation over the Panchaganga river pollution issue. Subhash Stores is a workshop meant for maintaining the hundreds of vehicles belonging to the Municipal Corporation. These vehicles are washed and the waste water is released into the Jayanti canal which gets mixed with the Panchaganga River. A petition is already filed with the Green Tribunal about ‘Subhash Stores’ being unauthorised. This is under review. This shows the double standards of the Municipal corporation. It is responsible for polluting Panchanganga, but is blaming the immersion of Shri Ganesh murtis for pollution. They have no moral right to do so, asserted Mr Kiran Duse, Kolhapur District Coordinator of HJS in a press release issued here.
