waste in rivers (Representational Image) Top News Adopting a multi-pronged strategy to tackle river pollution in Maharashtra the state government while pledging to make higher budgetary allocations has decided to preserve and rejuvenate the state’s rivers by enforcing stringent laws to prevent dumping of untreated solid waste and undertaking a plantation drive Guidelines are being reworked on putting a cap on construction activities along river fronts and following stringent norms An integrated policy to revive rivers and make them pollution-free is underway Desilting of rivers that have shrunk has also been included in the plans A senior secretary said: “Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis is keen on pushing a wholistic policy involving the Ministry of Urban Development Ministry of Environment Ministry of Water Resources and Ministry of Finance The state government believes that tackling river pollution cannot be confined to a handful of rivers Instead they should launch the project across all the rivers in Maharashtra” While at the Centre the focus is on Ganga cleaning the state government’s approach is to tackle pollution in all the 302 rivers across 36 districts There are 49 major river stretches which are the most-effected including the Krishna Godavari Tapi Wardha-Wainganga Panchganga Koyana Mula Mutha and Pravara The state government is pushing public-private partnership modules to raise funds for the river rejuvenation projects While raising concern over the high degree of pollution the chief minister said: “Almost 85 per cent of river pollution is caused due to untreated solid waste and not industrial effluents Therefore we have to make sewage treatment mandatory Untreated solid waste cannot be allowed to flow into the rivers” The water resources proposal under consideration suggests the recycling of water for agriculture and treatment of water by local bodies before allowing it to flow into rivers However the state government’s foremost concern is to make sewage treatment commercially viable Allowing municipal corporations and councils to sell treated water to industries and for agriculture is also recommended It is expected to help recover the cost of operating sewage treatment plants and also create funds that could be utilised for river preservation Water expert Madhav Chitale advocated greater participation of local bodies and villages in the river rejuvenation mission “The river cleaning drive cannot become a success without the help of local bodies and the participation of villages through which the rivers pass” Chitale said For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsAbuja:President-elect Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday vowed to rid Nigeria of the "terror" of Boko Haram after his historic election victory marking the first democratic transfer of power in Africa’s most populous nation The 72-year-old former military ruler also pledged reconciliation with political opponents who fear a return to his autocratic regime of the 1980s and a government representing "all Nigerians" Muhammadu Buhari AP/file image "I assure you that Boko Haram will soon know the strength of our collective will and commitment to rid this nation of terror and bring back peace" Buhari said in an acceptance speech after his dramatic win "We shall spare no effort until we defeat terrorism" Boko Haram whose rampage through northeastern Nigeria has left more than 13000 people dead in six years is Buhari’s most pressing security problem He also promised to address a culture of political impunity and the "evil" of rampant corruption but said there would be no witch-hunt and his beaten opponent Goodluck Jonathan had "nothing to fear" "Our long night has passed and the daylight of new democratic government has broken across the land Democracy and the rule of law will be established in the land "Let’s put the past behind us especially the recent past We must forget our old battles and past grievances and forge ahead" His victory wrote a new chapter in Nigeria’s often turbulent political history after six military coups since independence in 1960 and 16 years of unbroken civilian rule by Jonathan’s Peoples Democratic Party UN chief Ban Ki-moon and US President Barack Obama led the congratulations for Buhari But it was the first unprecedented opposition victory against a sitting president in Nigeria that won most plaudits "The last few days have shown the world the strength of Nigeria’s commitment to democratic principles" Obama said while his top Africa diplomat said Nigeria had raised the bar for the continent "Nigeria is a trailblazer" Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Linda Thomas-Greenfield told AFP "They have sent a huge huge example across Africa that democracy and change of government can work and it can work in a free and fair election" Buhari had praised Jonathan for his statesmanship in conceding defeat before the final result was declared helping to defuse the potential for poll-related violence and lengthy legal wranglings In a statement the heads of international election observation missions including the African Union and the European Union congratulated Nigeria and its people "for their commitment to a peaceful response to the election results" AFP Written by Tavleen Singh | Published: April 29 2012 2:15 am Related News The ruckus made about Bofors by the BJP in Parliament last week was no more than a lot of noise signifying nothing The Bharatiya Janata Partys senior leaders know well that the time to have done something was when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was prime minister and they know better than anyone else why nothing was done This makes the BJP as responsible for Ottavio Quattrocchi not being brought to justice as Congress It is too late now to get into the squalid reasons why the Vajpayee government did no more than make token attempts to bring Q back to India and send him to rot in Tihar ButBofors remains important for another reason and this is that it provides us with the finest example of crony capitalism as it existed in the days of the licence raj Those leftists and Anna Hazare followers who insist that crony capitalism is a product of economic liberalisation need to pay careful attention to what happened in Bofors If they doand if for a brief moment they take off their ideological blinkersthey will see that crony capitalism was the only kind we had in those socialist years If there is still crony capitalism possible todayit is mostly because of ministers with too many discretionary powers like A Raja and his inexplicable powers to distribute Spectrum as he liked Andbecause government contracts with foreign companies for such things as gunsfighter aircraft and passenger aeroplanes remain shrouded in veils of secrecy In earlier times when socialism was our proudly stated economic creedthe possibilities for crony capitalism were limitless The economy was so tightly controlled by politicians and high officials that only they could decide which businessmen needed their help to become millionaires and billionaires In this processthey themselves often became veryvery rich and often this was through money paid into foreign bank accounts This made it possible for nearly all our bureaucrats and political leaders to send their children abroad for higher studies Crony capitalism thrives in countries in which the state controls the economy It benefits mostly state players which is why our political parties and high officials continue to long wistfully for the license raj In the Sonia-Manmohan governmentthis longing manifests itself in such things as the retrospective taxthe attempt to bind down medical students going abroad for their studies and the attempt to perpetuate the licence raj through the misguided Right to Education Act (RTE) Sadly this nostalgia for the licence raj is not confined to Congress The BJP has played an active role in stopping desperately needed economic reforms and has done nothing to stop such retrograde measures as the plan to tax people on money they made decades earlier If the BJP had pronounced loudly and clearly that this is such a bad tax that they will reverse it if they come to powerthe foreign investors who are fleeing our shores in droves may pause to think twice When it comes to crony capitalismthere is the same sort of ambiguity in evidence because all our politicians know that it is only through crony capitalism that politicians and bureaucrats can become rich If the businesses run by the families of our senior political leaders were investigatedit should be quite easy to establish that they are no more than corporate fronts set up to conceal dirty money Butwho is going to investigate The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) behaved disgracefully in the Bofors matter Sten Lindstrom made it clear in his interview with Chitra Subramaniam last week that the CBI sleuths who went to Sweden were totally unserious Who were they by the way Is it not possible to find out the names of the officials who went to Swedenat the cost of Indian taxpayersand did not even meet the men who were investigating the gun deal It may be too late to catch the man who was Q in Martin Ardbos diary but it may not be too late to punish the faceless officials who made it possible for him to not just flee Indialike a thief in the nightbut helped him get away with his stolen money and live happily ever after Ahthose socialist times when it was so easy for a foreigner with friends in high places to switch from setting up urea factories (under the aegis of the Indian government) to selling heavy artillery to the Indian army Q managed this with no questions being asked Andhas continued to never need to explain why Bofors bribed him in the first place Crony capitalism has mercifully been curbed since the state loosened its controls on the economy but ironically those who claim to despise crony capitalism most also want state controls to return Follow Tavleen Singh on Twitter @ Tavleen_Singh For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy:
