PPCB officials only work under political pressure -Sant Seechewal
There was deliberate delay in getting samples of Chadha Sugar Mill
Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal told the Punjab Pollution Control Board that their officials only work under political pressure. He said that there was a deliberate delay in getting samples of Chadha Sugar Mill at Keedi Afgana. Even second time action was taken after the scolding of the officials done by the Chairman S.S. Marwaha. He blamed that even after the report of NGT there is delay in taking action against the mill.
It is worth mentioning that sheera mixed water of Chadha Sugar Mill is again falling in the Beas river.
