Nature Works its Magic on Bengaluru Lakes Amidst Lockdown

The lockdown has come as a blessing in disguise for Bengaluru’s water bodies. And there are discernible signs that two of the city’s notoriously polluted lakes-Varthur and Bellandur-are getting healed naturally. These pleasant changes have caught the attention of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) as well as the expert committee on Bellandur and Varthur lakes. The stakeholders worry that all these will go to naught as soon as the lockdown is lifted. Keeping this in mind, the expert committee members are planning to request the government to restart the stalled works on rejuvenating the lakes soon after the lockdown is lifted, giving no scope for pollutants to enter the water bodies.
