HC directs Haryana govt to remove bunds on Yamuna
TIMES NEWS NETWORK

New Delhi:

Delhi high court on Friday directed Haryana government to demolish bunds built on the Yamuna. It also asked Delhi’s neighbour to ensure that water was supplied to the capital without impediments. “There should be no hindrance in the flow of water from there (Haryana) to Delhi,” a bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice A J Bhambhani said.


The direction came after a committee — constituted by the high court to inspect whether “bunds” had been created in canals carrying water meant for Delhi — told the bench that such obstructions were found at 11 locations. The committee, also comprising retired high court judge Justice Indermeet Kaur and amicus curiae Rakesh Khanna, submitted its report, stating that apart from creation of bunds, largescale mining was going on along the Yamuna. The report added that mining was “causing huge environmental damage to the flora and fauna” in and around the riverbed. It said the bunds “have definitely affected the flow of water in the Yamuna”.

The committee further stated: “The state of Haryana has deliberately and intentionally kept back the information regarding details of mining site permits along the river. This shows that the state was trying to provide a cover to activities affecting not only the flow of water, but also causing environmental pollution.”

The committee was of the view that the flow of water in the river needed to be monitored. It suggested installation of flow meters for this purpose. However, the suggestions were opposed by Haryana, which said it wanted to file its objections to the findings of the report. The bench gave Haryana till July 22 to do the same.
