My dream Yamuna

Delhi's Clean Yamuna


Not many will recognize that this Delhi’s own Yamuna. Yes, this clean. The photo is taken at a place called Jagatpur, 2 kms upstream of Wazirabad. I dream of a clean Yamuna downstream of Wazirabad too.

As many as 28 drains dump sewage in the Yamuna downstream of Wazirabad. The Delhi Jal Board has drawn up yet another plan to salvage the situation. Here is what the Hindustan Times’ graphic stated what the DJB plans to do.

Will it help rectify the situation? Wait and watch!!!
