Air and water pollution has been brought to notice in the nearby villages of Udaipur. Chemical waste from factories is the only reason behind this.
Chemical waste from factories in Titardi and Dakan Kotda villages is polluting both air and water in these villages. It has been reported that the factory waste is being dumped on the pastures in the villages resulting in the death of cattle. The chemical waste enters rivers and other water bodies during rainy season. Villagers have filed a collective complaint against Macsen Laboratories on Wednesday with Hiran Magri police station.
As per the report, the chemical waste is highly poisonous. Till date, factory owners have not found a proper way of disposing this waste. The water bodies are now polluted and poisonous as a result more than 50 animals have died. Many animals are falling sick. Even human life is in danger. Health is in for a great danger because of this chemical waste. Panchayat members Manohar Singh, Fateh Singh, Chandan Singh, Yagvendra Singh, Girdhari Singh, Dulhe Singh, Man Singh, Jalam Singh, Roop Singh and Shambhu Singh have filed complaint Macsen Laboratories.
Macsen Laboratories makes dyes. A big quantity of chemicals is used in making dyes. These dyes are used to check leakages in other industries. As a rule, no industry or factory is allowed to dispose waste in open or in any water body or drains. As per the villagers, Macsen Laboratories is disposing its waste on the land that is registered as pasture.
Regional officer Pollution Control Board B R Panwar said that no complaint has been received by his office so far. He said he would investigate the matter tomorrow.
