Four years earlier on 28th May 2014 a writ pettition under the leadership of Smt.Shabnam Godara from Hanumangarh Rajasthan was made before the National Green Tribunal, which stated that the contaminated waters from Punjab are spreading cancer in the 8 districts of Rajasthan. Punjab govt. and Punjab Pollution Control Board is not taking any strict action to stop the dumping of poisonous waters in the Sutlej River. Smt.Shabnam Godara said while conversing that as the Punjab govt. is not taking any strict action for the last four years, the National Green Tribunal has decided to form this committee. This decision to form this committee was taken during the hearing on this issue on 23rd July by the NGT. During this hearing Pollution Control Board told that only 466 MLD contaminated water out of 650 MLD is being treated. About 200 MLD of untreated water is going through canals to Rajasthan. National Green Tribunal has given strict instructions that not any type of contaminated and poisonous waters should fall into rivers.
