AAP govt stalled work on sewage treatment plant in Rithala: LG office sources

New Delhi:

The AAP government did not grant permission for the translocation of trees for the Rithala Phase-I sewage treatment plant, stalling the project and leading to discharge of untreated sewage into the Yamuna river, sources in the Lieutenant Governor’s office have said.

The project was funded by the central government under the Yamuna Action Plan-III, they said.

The files pertaining to it were pending with Delhi’s minister of environment and forests for nearly two years, they claimed.
