Himachal HC orders penal action against illegal Muck Dumping in Govind Sagar Lake

Shimla, June 21 (UNI) At a time when entire north-west India is facing the worst ever water crisis, authorities, both states, and centres are involved in creating water pollution as they are dumping tones of construction muck into water bodies, rivers, and water dams, feeding the supply of water for human consumption.
