Winter tourism season in Jammu and Kashmir: Srinagar's Dal Lake undergoes cleaning 

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 13 Oct 2020, 06:13 pm

Srinagar: The winter tourism season is coming closer and keeping it in mind the Kashmir Lakes and Waterways Development Authority (LAWDA) has started a massive mission to clean Dal Lake, media reports said.

LAWDA has put its latest machinery and men into forces for this cleaning drive. The manual cleaning of the lake also provides employment to hundreds of dwellers, reports ANI.

As a part of the mission, authorities plan to clean weeds like lily pads, creepers, algae, water plants, and other waste material present in the water body which hamper the movement of Shikara and affect the overall aesthetic beauty of the lake.

“We have started a drive to clean the Dal Lake. We are trying to keep it clean as tourists are coming from other states. We have put machinery on work. I would like to urge people to come to Kashmir for witnessing the beauty of Dal Lake,” Syed Tariq, Works Supervisor, LAWDA told ANI.

 Farooq Ahmad, a local resident, appreciated the initiative and told ANI: "Dal Lake is being cleaned. This is a good step by the LAWDA. Earlier there was no tourist due to the COVID-19 lockdown but now as the government has lifted the lockdown, tourists have started to come here and everyone who visits here wants to see Dal Lake first and it has to be cleaned."
