Chief justice waghela had passed judgement clear encroachments puttenalli sarraki lake. On august 5th for lake encroachers but today 18th DEC 14, i find people crossing highway road and marking other areas as lake , then if waghela and his team members are keen on lake , they should find the route cause of people who have made highway on lake bed. Ensure lakes all around should not be used highway. Even he doesn’t know what how much govt sanctioned for lake development. But what amount used worthy towards development if we talk in terms of national development and human welfare.
