A news source said on April 29 that the Rawalpindi Administration has put Section 144 in place around Nullah Leh for a month before the monsoon season to stop people from dumping building waste and other trash in the area.
The Water and Sanitation Agency (WASA) asked for the part to be made law because it will soon start cleaning the nullah to stop flooding during the monsoon season. It is believed that Nullah Leh will be clean by the end of June.
Hassan Waqat Cheema, the deputy commissioner, brought up the problem of trash and building debris being dumped in the nullah and its tributaries. In a notice that was sent out, Cheema said that this practise is a major danger to public health and the natural ecosystem. The trash that is dumped into the nullah makes it hard for water to move naturally. Putting Section 144 into effect will solve this problem right away, and limits are important to keep people’s health and lives safe in the district, he said.
