Canal clean-up drive mere a formality
The irrigation department began to clean up the canal on Sunday, which has originated from Kaithan dam, sources in the irrigation department said.
The residents, however, said cleaning up of the canal was just a formality.
They further said that the canal was not being completely cleaned with JCB machine.
Besides, the dirt dug out of the canal has been kept on the banks and it may fall into the river.
There was no official from the irrigation to supervise the clean-up drive, residents said.
