Title: Need to check pollution caused by sugar factory in Newshol Tehsil in Ahmednagar District, Maharashtra.

TEXT :
SHRI DILIPKUMAR MANSUKHLAL GANDHI (AHMEDNAGAR): A Sarkari sugar factory is situated in Newshol Tehsil in Ahmednagar District, Maharashtra. Because of the drainage of residue of this factory, about 25,000 acres of land has been completely spoiled and the dirty water of this factory has even led to serious pollution.

The thousands of pilgrims visiting Shani Mandir in Singanapur have to drink this polluted water. This sugar factory is making the thousands of acres of land polluted.

I urge upon the Central Government to take necessary steps in this regard.
