Ghaziabad, Aug 23 IANS | 4 months ago

The Aranya-Eco NGO Saturday submitted a memorandum to Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti for constituting a national pond development authority.

The NGO organised a demonstration here on this and submitted that due to increasing pollution of river water, traditional water resources must be developed on priority basis.

Aranya-Eco secretary Sanjay Kashyap said that apart from being water resources, ponds are significant in view of conservation of bio-diversity and environment. Therefore, the need to establish a national pond development authority is a must.
