We handed over our complaints collected, to the area Sub Inspector. He immediately informed the concerned authorities to seize the tractor and warn the perpetrators from encroaching the lake. We also sent registered post to BDA and LDA alerting them of the happening. BDA Executive Engineer Somesh M C said, “Action will be taken within two weeks and fencing will start after that.”

Citizens of the area are meeting on September 1st to create awareness on stopping encroachment and reviving a beautiful lake! Please support Help us save our lake.
