Tanneries to move apex court on relocation issue

31
Mar '10
Uttar Pradesh government by asserting that the tanneries in the city are polluting the river Ganga, has proposed to relocate around 400 tanneries from Jajmau (in Kanpur) to Unnav.

On the other hand, Nayyar Jamal, President, Tanners' Association, while disparaging the allegations of the government, said that, if they are forced to relocate then they may move the Supreme Court, pleading for justice.

The government had issued orders to the tanneries in Jajmau, directing them to reposition themselves to Unnav, earlier. Such directions were issued by the government based on the allegations that those tanneries were polluting the Ganges.

The tanneries contend by saying that relocating the tanneries would render around 50,000 people jobless in Kanpur.

Imran Siddiqui, a member of the UP Leather Industries Association, divulged that, the State Pollution Control Board has powers to close down the tanneries which are responsible for water pollution.

He added by saying that, all the tanneries are discharging dirty water in to the common effluent treatment plant and that they are even paying charges to the government for processing such polluted water.

Over and above this, the association claimed that, the tanneries contribute revenues worth around Rs. 25 billion to the state's economy, each year.
