Haryana government to build dam in Najafgarh to reclaim farmland from marshes
| Monday | 11th February, 2019
The drain and jheel in Najafgarh are the only outlets for floodwaters from the city.
Since Delhi has already built a bund along the Najafgarh drain in the area falling in Delhi, the Gurugram part of the wetland is considered significant for water recharge in the region.
Vaishali Rana Chandra , a resident of Valley View Apartments, questioned the rush to raise a bund here.
“Before Section 144 comes into force, we want the government to come up with a special ordinance and pass the proposal in the legislative assembly.
GURUGRAM: The Haryana government is speeding up construction of a bund (check dam) along the Najafgarh drain, after farmers from eight villages threatened to boycott the general elections, if construction doesn’t start within a couple of months.More than 40,000 land owners in eight villages — Dharampur, Momdheri, Daulatabad, Kherki Majra, Dhankot, Chandu, Budhera and Makrola — said they would not vote if no decision was reached over construction of the bund in the nallah area falling in Gurugram.
