SSNNL Too Gets Notice For Poor Maintenance

Gujarat high court on Thursday issued a notice to the state government and Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd (SSNNL) over a PIL emphasizing the poor condition of sub-minor canals because of non-maintenance. A bench of Chief Justice Bhaskar Bhattacharya and Justice J B Pardiwala sought an explanation from the authorities for the condition of these small canals near Dholka, Dhandhuka and in Central Gujarat. This came about after the petitioner, Amrish Patel from Jan Sangharsh Manch, placed photographs showing the dilapidated canals before the court.
