Deconstructing the Yamuna Floodplains
This is what mindless construction on the Mithi river of Mumbai led to back in 2005.
The land-deprived city of Mumbai – a city lying adjascent to a sea! – now faces the flood crisis every year.
Coming back to Delhi – we have been ‘planning’ a similar fate for the city as well.
It is therefore requested to the Government and to the concerned authorities to take note of the same and – STOP the construction on the Yamuna floodplains – leading to an ecological deconstruction of the floodplains and of the entire city.
