Subject: Nasirpur Dwarka Water Bodies

Sir,

I am writing this letter for conservation and restoration of Nasirpur, Dwarka Water bodies, which is in a very deplorable condition.

I would like to bring to your kind notice that the situation of the Nasirpur Water Body is practically suffocating. Pictures saying it all.

Fig 1: Construction malba & buffaloes bathing; Fig 2 : Dug up area for flow of water to the other dried up water body
Construction Malba dumped all along the periphery of WaterBody including plastic material (Fig-1). Cattle taking bath, vehicle being parked within the compound, repair workshop is also going on (Fig-2). One water body has already dried up as can be seen in the picture below (Fig-3, page 2). Surrounding area is totally barren, very hard to find any green cover (All figs.). The main entry gate at Nasirpur Village side is always kept open making trespassing and parking of vehicle easy. This is also damaging the water body. I would like to bring to your kind notice that the situation of the Nasirpur Water Body is practically suffocating. Pictures saying it all.

If need be, both the water bodies be desilted before monsoon for more water storage capacity, malba dumped within the compound and particularly by the side of the water body needs to be removed urgently.

It is also requested to kindly stop all unauthorized activities going on within the compound of Water Body forth which will regulate the damage to the Water Body.
