Kudos to residents of Sahid Nagar in Jadavpur, they have set up a watchdog forum to protect a waterbody that is under threat from land sharks. Despite open threats from goons, residents- many of them retired have refused to budge and forced the arrest of five persons who were attempting to dump rubbish into the pond.
In the past couple of decades numerous ponds of that area has been filled up to build buildings, this one is the last waterbody of that area.
The land sharks are trying every possible method to kill it, latest is proposing a road through it- that will of course mean filling it up. Hope they won’t get the permit!
Those who let these land sharks have their way should get inspired and join these bravehearts!
