In­sight­ful ar­ti­cle

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

This is re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle by Ishan Kukreti "Flouted with im­punity" (16-30 Septem­ber, 2017). I saw the rise in the de­mand and prices of sand be­cause of a sand min­ing ban near Falgu River in Bihar. The im­punity with which these min­ing groups flout en­vi­ron­men­tal norms speaks about our own lack of con­cern about the en­vi­ron­ment. Study­ing the recharge ca­pac­ity of rivers seems fea­si­ble and should be rec­om­mended to pol­i­cy­mak­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tion.
