Yamuna clean-up

New Delhi, September 8: NON-Government Organisations (NGOs) concerned about the state of the Yamuna may have welcomed the Supreme Court’s nod to the Thames course, but they want a single agency to handle the plan.

Of the total 1,300 km that comprise the Yamuna, the 22 km stretch falling in Delhi records 80 per cent of the pollution load. "The difference can be clearly seen. The colour of the river water changes the moment it enters the Palla area," said Krishna.
