Expressing serious concern over the reports of mass fish mortality in Dal Lake, CPI(M) leader Muhammad Yousuf Tarigami demanded a thorough probe into the incident on Saturday.
Tarigami in a statement said that the sudden death of a large number of fish in Dal Lake following heavy rains in the last two days has triggered panic among locals. This tragic incident not only poses a severe threat to the fragile ecosystem of the lake but also jeopardizes the livelihoods of thousands of people who depend on the lake for their sustenance. Preserving the ecological balance of Dal Lake is of utmost importance.
“We urge concerned authorities to depute environmental experts to ascertain the cause of fish mortality so as to ensure that the lake’s ecosystem is restored and such incidents are prevented in the future”. [KNT]
