JUNE 02,2016:Pahalgam has a lot of tourists visiting it these days especially a number of domestic and local tourists including school children who consume a lot of fast food and litter packets and polybags etc at picnic spots like betab valley. In fact all this garbage is dumped in the lidder in the evening by local sanitation staff of contractor as per source, threatening the local lidder river ecology. Even the teachers accompanying these students fail to contain this irresponsibility on part of these students. The PDA has outsourced the maintainance and operations of betab to private people and they have constructed a number of sheds threatening to make betab into another baisaran. Even the maintainence staff at Pahalgam club dumps garbage into the river and/or burns the garbage as per sources. These people carry about with their bussiness of converting Pahalgam into a garbage valley without shame or fear due to political patronage. We need to think about these issues this environment day and accept our responsibility in preserving the environment. We cant leave the task just to the civic bodies and must come together to save the environment as a society.
