AAP Sounds Alarm on Pune’s Vital Rivers: Urges PMC for Immediate Action on Pollution

In response to escalating concerns over the worsening pollution levels in the Mula and Mutha rivers, crucial water sources for Pune city, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is urging urgent action from the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC). Allegations of negligence by PMC and the Environment Department have sparked apprehensions about the potential health and environmental consequences of the contamination.

Recent revelations from AAP Pune indicate a planned in-depth examination of the rivers, with water samples collected from Siddheshwar Ghat and slated for delivery to key officials. Sudarshan Jagdale, President of AAP, criticized PMC’s allocation of resources to peripheral projects, branding them as distractions from pressing issues like river cleanliness.

Despite international pledges for river cleaning projects, little progress has been observed, leaving citizens disillusioned with PMC’s priorities. AAP’s attempts to engage with PMC officials faced resistance, highlighting the gap between authorities and public concerns.

AAP’s General Secretary, Satish Yadav, expressed frustration at PMC’s reluctance to address citizen demands, warning of escalated protests if prompt action isn’t taken. Akshay Shinde hinted at unconventional tactics, suggesting that if PMC fails to respond within a week, water tankers may visit officials’ residences.
