This is to draw your attention on the heavy pollution being generated by the trucks carrying fly-ash of NTPC ash dump ground located at Bhankri. Ash carrying trucks ply from Sainik Colony to highway projects using main roads of Sainik colony, Bhankri and Pali villages.
This has been observed that-
The excavation of the project is being done improperly without any precautions been observed till date.
The ash flies more than loaded in the trucks.The loading of trucks is being done in an open environment.
The dry flyash carrying trucks are uncovered without a drop of water.
The ash keeps flying all the way till the time it is reached the required destination. In fact at time to ensure quantity of ash been supplied these truck ply with over loaded ash and that is is the most hazardous condition.
The trucks and tractors carrying fly-ash run in the peak hours and they do not obey the traffic norms. Most of the trucks are seen on the wrong road sides.
This has been happening since 3 months now and has created problems like-
Dust layer on the roads, homes, trees, animals and humans of course.
Forest and in the residential areas like Sainik Colony, Bhankri village, Pali, Nangla, Gaunchhi, Sector 55, and Ballabgarh are severely effected.
This type of flyash contains arsenic, beryllium, boron, cadmium, chromium, hexavalent, chromium, cobalt, lead, manganese, mercury, molybdenum, selenium, strontium, thallium, and vanadium, along with very small concentrations of dioxins and PAH compounds, all are dangerous to the humans and animals.
The residents of these areas have started facing asthmatic and breathing issues which is just the beginning signs.
Also would draw your attention that there are 8-10 big schools located in the areas where fly ash is been transported.
This not all but the ash has been digged deep and lose ash is left wide open with any safety measures been followed. Voluntary or involuntary we are from last couple of months we are eating, drinking and breathing thermal power station ash. Pls stand for noble cause save our lives.
