Most of the factory owners are having political background. Factory waste waters are mixing in the river water it is happening in all the reiver belt area . No solution found out so far. Tirunelveli Tamirabarani river water is polluted by Sun Paper Mill , Ambai GH waste, Madura coats waste water. Unless stringent law in Parliment to curtail this this problem could not be solved. Like the shops from small to big throwing tonnes of garbages a challenhes to Municipal workers.. The number of workers to be increased and shop owners to take care for the disposal of garbages. more
