Maharashtra, India : Blame game continues over Indrayani river pollution.

The Indrayani river pollution issue continues to escalate, with blame shifting between the Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) and Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB). PCMC accuses industries, urging MPCB to take action, while MPCB blames untreated sewage from local bodies and demands action from PCMC. Despite citizens' concerns and Chief Minister Eknath Shinde's intervention, no concrete preventive measures have been taken. Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar calls for MPCB involvement, but officials remain inactive. Despite an earlier inspection and ministerial directives in December, the river still faces pollution, evident in a recent observation of toxic foam. https://www.hindustantimes.com/cities/pune-news/blame-game-continues-over-indrayani-river-pollution-101704566810744.html  Below is a massive layer of toxic foam was observed on the sacred Indrayani river for a few days.

      The Indrayani river needs action, not blame. We must raise our voices, demand accountability from authorities, and advocate for urgent solutions to ensure the health of the river and the communities that depend on it.

          Blaming each other will not solve the problem and may exacerbate the situation. We need concerted efforts towards identifying the sources of pollution.

            @gorffly_mokua You're absolutely right. Instead of blaming one another, concerted efforts should be directed towards identifying the sources of pollution in order to effectively address the issue.
