Watch | Land erosion by sand extractors in Lasjan

136

Residents of the Lasjan area in the outskirts of the Srinagar city seek the attention of administration as they say that the sand extraction from the river has been a major cause of land near the bank of the river. They say they have brought the issue to the notice of administration many times but nothing concrete has been done to address the issue. Residents of the area fear damage to the houses and roads located around the river if sand extractors are not restricted.


The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
