“This matter is very serious, for which we have been taking follow-up with the PCMC for the last 2 months. The water contains harmful elements which poses a big health risk. As this is a very sensitive issue, we have asked the commissioner and health officials to take immediate action on this and have asked them to install CCTV cameras on both the sides of the river basin to monitor the area so that no one will dare to mix such harmful elements in the water,” said Aniket Prabhu, President, Thergaon Social Foundation.
