De-silting of Kashmir’s famous Dal Lake begins
Srinagar, April 22 (ANI): Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir have begun work to de-silt the century-old world famous Dal Lake and remove encroachments. Built in the Mughal era, it is the second largest lake in the state. Raw sewage, land encroachment and years of neglect have been threatening the survival of the lake where visitors from Mughal emperors to George Harrison once enjoyed the idyllic stillness of its waters surrounded by Himalayan mountains. Engineers of the Lakes and Waterways Development Authority, which has been assigned with the task, said they were hopeful of completing the work soon. Locals have welcomed the government initiative.
