By Our Correspondent

Agartala, Feb 15 2020: A division bench of High Court has asked the state government to draw up a comprehensive plan to restore original lake area of Rudrasagar, only lake palace of Eastern India.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Akhil Khureshi also ordered the state government to initiate de-siltation process to clean up Rudrasagar, declared as Ramser site. The developments came in course of hearing on a PIL regarding the splendid water body, which is now drying up with every passing day.

During the hearing, the court also examined two separate reports submitted by Wetland Authority of Tripura (WAT) and Amicus Curiae- Indrajit Chakraborty. On two reports, the court passed some significant observations.

"It is observed that there were brick fields operating in the actual lake area. Although brick fields are closed down following orders of the Court, the area occupied by such brick kilns is not reclaimed yet", it observed.

The bench further stated of the total three tributaries supplying water to Rudijala (Rudrasagar), only one is active now."The other two are literally dormant. The government needs to clean the two natural water cannels before on set of monsoon so that water flow doesn’t get stalled". The Court fixed March 2 as the next hearing date on the case.
