Prime News, Karnataka, New Delhi, August 17:- Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday assured that the government is taking all necessary action to tackle the Bellandur Lake menace in Bengaluru, adding that the problem will be solved within a year or two.
“The government is taking all necessary action. It is there; it will be solved within one or two years,” he told the media persons, here.
The Bellandur Lake once again spilled toxic foam, earlier today, which grew to such an extent that the residents have started complaining of foul smell and pollution.
The commuters were not able drive due to the intense foam, giving them a tough time. The citizens also believe that this toxic foam would cause an epidemic in the area.
Highly-polluted Bellandur Lake, the largest of the 262 lakes and tanks in Bengaluru, has spilled toxic foam many times in the recent past and on several occasions the toxic foam also caught fire.
On August 15, the lake spilled toxic foam after heavy overnight rain in the state.
