The Ravi Riverfront Development Project, costing 5 trillion rupees from public funding for which black money is also enocuraged, is only detrimental to our environment and comes attached with more complication to erect buildings in the area as compared to ease. Development is planned on the riverbed and floodplains - areas highly susceptible to flooding which would in turn cause damage to the building's structure. The damage to the river would come through the inevitable pollution from dirt, sewage and oils along with the loss of animal habitats and the river may even change its course. Groundwater would also not be able to be soaked up by the earth as it would be replaced with concrete which coupled with a change in shape and course, would redirect the water back into the river making flooding more likely and less preventable

Developers are already surveying the area and the Government continues to stand firm on their stance: giving the project a green light, so it is now up to us to raise our voices and call a stop to this environmental tradegy before it is too late.
