Gurdaspur district’s stone crushers killing rivers
Most of the municipal councils in the border belt are functioning without a sewage treatment plant
When things get bad, they really do. This, in essence, sums up the pollution scenario in the border district of Gurdaspur where two lifelines, Ravi and Beas, are being choked by stone crushers. Officially, Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) officials may paint a rosy picture and claim the rivers are pollution-free.
