CM orders crackdown on polluting units 

Chandigarh: Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Wednesday ordered a crackdown on polluting industrial units in the state, with stringent enforcement of laws and regulations governing the discharge of effluents into the rivers.His government will not allow pollution to affect the health of people at any cost, whether in towns or villages, the CM asserted, issuing a series of directives to the Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) and other departments to take action against any violation of laws in this regard.Chairing a meeting to review the situation in the wake of the recent incident of spillage of molasses into the Beas, the CM said neither the industry nor the municipalities would be allowed to flow any effluents into the rivers without treating them. Lambasting AAP and its leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira for “playing political games over such a serious issue”, he said his government was seriously tackling the issue of pollution in a systematic manner.Lashing out at the previous SAD-BJP government for “making a mess of the state during the 10 years of their misrule”, Capt Amarinder said it would take time to streamline things, but all problems were being tackled one by one.
