New Delhi, Dec 10, 2016 : Concerned about the East Delhi Municipal Corporation’s (EDMC) proposal to develop a 150-acre landfill and a waste-to-energy plant on the banks of the Yamuna, environmentalists have started a petition asking the Delhi government to put the brakes on the move. Initiated by Manoj Misra of NGO Yamuna Jiye Abhiyaan and Vimlendu Jha, the petition will be submitted to Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. According to the petition, the plan is the “most preposterous and ill-conceived proposal in the history of the Yamuna and urban governance in the country”.
