lesser-known small wild cat As its name suggests it feeds on fish — primarily found in water bodies like wetlands swamps rivers etc Already classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature the fishing cat — and several other species — could be severely imperiled if the proposed Draft Wetlands (Conservation and Management) Rules 2016 replacing the previous Wetlands (Conservation and Management) Rules 2010 is implemented by the Ministry of Environment Forests and Climate Change “The way we treat our wetlands shows how civilised a society we are; and the way we treat our planet especially water says a lot about the way we are as humans” says Shomita Mukherjee a scientist with the Salim Ali Center for Ornithology (SACON) who has worked on fishing cats The ministry’s deadline for comments on the Draft Wetlands Rules 2016 closed on 6 June However the changes proposed in this draft have ecologists wildlife scientists environmental activists and legal experts very concerned Further these experts believe that the DWR needs to be looked at in the larger context of what the current government has been doing in terms of environmental legislation Chilika Lake Image from Facebook Parineeta Dandekar the associate coordinator for South Asia Network on Dams Rivers and People says “There is complete reluctance to protect wetlands and some of the gaps in the proposed rules are absolutely shocking For instance how are Ramsar wetlands (wetlands notified as per the Ramsar Convention 1971) going to be managed how are transboundary wetlands going to be managed who exactly is going to manage them The forest department It raises too many questions The Draft is a half-hearted attempt to replace the previous one from 2010 it needs to be redone completely” Environmentalists claim there are multiple issues with the DWR The main bone of contention is the doing away of the Central Wetlands Regulatory Authority which notifies and regulates wetlands Although the CWRA’s term ended on 31 March 2015 it wasn’t reconstituted Instead a new National Plan for Conservation of Aquatic Ecosystems (NPCA) was formed integrating two previous programmes to avoid duplication of responsibilities On the occasion of the World Wetland Day on 2 February Prakash Javdekar the central environment minister said the NPCA would provide the policy framework and support to the States However the NPCA guidelines are yet to be formulated The new proposed rules mean wetlands can now come under the purview of state governments Ironically only a handful of states even have a functioning State Level Wetland Authority and no new wetlands have been notified since the previous rules came into inception Activists believe this doesn’t augur well for the wetlands as giving the state governments the authority to regulate wetlands will make them only more susceptible to developmental pressures The concerns seem justified when you note that according to studies by SACON India has lost 38 percent of its wetlands from 1991 to 2001 alone The main threats to their survival are hydro power projects reclamation and encroachment by the construction lobby habitat loss and pollution mainly in urban areas The other main issue the DWR has left out is the participation of local people living around the water bodies Good examples of wetland preservation — like the Chilika lake in Orissa and Vembanad Kol lake in Kerala — have been successful due to the empowerment of people dependent on the lakes The Draft Regulatory Framework 2008 was considered a very nuanced document at it classified wetlands in different categories and it included people right down to the zilla parishad level The DWR however has the chief minister(s) of the states heading the State Level Wetland Authority which will includes 12 other bureaucratic civil servants — leaving out experts from various fields like hydrology ecology etc It is an unnecessary additional responsibility on an already overburdened state machinery which will surely be found wanting in executing guidelines for protection of wetlands The present proposed rules have also poorly defined what constitutes a wetland Agricultural fields river catchments and even man-made structures are left out from the definition of wetlands This can have severe repercussions for animals birds and the communities directly dependent on such resources “The role of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has been removed this gives the Draft a very weak legal standing” says Sampurna Behura of Reach Law According to R Shreedhar Environics Trust such a move is a disguise to push the ease-of-doing-business agenda of the current government This can have not only serious implications on conservation of a resource as common as wetlands but also take the bite out of deterrents aimed at vested interests that might abuse these water bodies Blatant construction on wetlands across cities like Mumbai Bengaluru Kolkata has adversely impacted their hydrology causing grave man-made floods and water crisis for their populations Behura cautions that with no appellate body and right to grievance the penalty for abuse of wetlands will be akin to meagre pollution penalties “Wetlands are like sponges they give life to everybody Life evolved out of water if we neglect water what will be left of us” says Goldin Quadros a wetland scientist with SACON Representational image Naresh Sharma/Firstpost In an urbanised world wetlands are the most productive ecological system About 6 lakh people depend on Bhopal lakes for water supply Laktak in Manipur provides livelihoods to more than one lakh fisherfolk while Chilika does to two lakh The same amount depend on the Vembanad Kol for irrigation Wetlands’ soils may contain as much as 200 times more carbon than the vegetation it supports thus sequestering large amounts of carbon and regulating microclimate of their areas Wetlands such as the mangroves and floodplains also form an important physical barrier against natural disasters like cyclones Many villages around the Bhitarkanika in Orissa that had intact mangrove forests are considerably less impacted by the effects of periodic cyclones Many such highly useful benefits of wetlands render them an indispensible part of any ecosystem Sangai an endangered endemic deer species found only in Manipur live in the marshy wetlands of the southern part of the Loktak lake It is almost entirely dependent on the lake for its survival just like the fishing cat Sarus cranes black necked cranes Gangetic river dolphins the Indian mud turtle and numerous threatened species of birds and fauna feed (off) and live in and around wetlands It is the only resource apart from rivers that is found across India — from the high altitudes of trans-Himalayas to the forests of the North-East the deserts of Kutch and the coasts of peninsular India Though the opening lines of the DWR 2016 begins promisingly for the wetlands: “Central Government considers it necessary to supersede the Wetlands (Conservation and Management) Rules 2010 for effective conservation and management of the wetlands in the country” — it might perhaps be best to do away with it completely in its present form and develop instead a progressive set of rules involving various stakeholders and experts This of course is if it wants to practice what it preaches — not only for the benefit of the communities but also animals dependent on these natural kidneys of our planet By: Express News Service | Chandigarh | Published:

and the latter using the opportunity to relieve themselves But it is rare to see a pet owner picking up the waste left behind by their pets instead of allowing it to lie on the road While there have been concerted efforts to discourage open defecation in Pune city authorities have done little to keep public spaces free of animal faeces In the absence of any law to make pet owners clean up the waste very few of them bother to do so Most of them point to the littered public places or ask questions like “What about street dogs Who is stopping them from littering public roads” Many believe that if their pet dog relieves itself outside their residence then it’s the responsibility of the Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) to clean it up “I own two dogs and they generally don’t defecate outside the house… but when they do so in the society premises I don’t clean it myself the cleaning staff does If the dogs relieve themselves on the streets there’s no need to bother as the PMC staff or sweepers clean it… if it urinates on someone’s door I clean it” said Rajwardhan Jarag a resident of Ramnagar Society Katraj A few mohalla committees in the city have taken steps to make pet owners behave more responsibly As per SM Kamble a sanitary Inspector with the Ghole Road ward office of the PMC the Bhosale Nagar Mohalla Committee has repeatedly followed up on the issue and even requested the PMC’s Solid Waste Management Department to fine dog owners if they refuse to clean up after their dogs“We started to implement the fine system last year We also tried to raise awareness by approaching residential societies… we have put up notices in societies in areas such as Bhosale Nagar Apte Road Model Colony Mangalwadi Society off S B Road Some pet owners respond positively others don’t” said Kamble He said his personnel have imposed fines of Rs 500 fine on several pet owners for “littering public places” but this has led to acrimonious exchanges Uma Karve who runs a pet shop as well as a quarterly magazine for pet owners blamed the ‘laziness’ of dog owners However she said that penalising the dog owners won’t work but raising awareness may yield results According to Malati Gadgil of SwaCH wastepickers and road sweepers often face issues due to the dog waste lying on the road Another issue is that even if the owners pick after their dogs and drop the waste in the garbage bin there’s no way to segregate it “It’s mixed with the wet or dry waste… the solution could be for the PMC to have separate bins for dog waste which can then be picked up and used for biogas production Also it’s a must to have more bins along the road” said Malati Of course some pet owners do consider it their responsibility to clean up after their dogs Priya Mulgund a resident of Apte Colony said “… Whenever we take our dog Tosho out and he defecates we carry a bag and clean it ourselves It’s important to keep the area hygienic…” For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express

Police has cited evidence collected by the varsity’s internal inquiry committee suggesting that eight students including JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar allegedly indulged in raising unconstitutional slogans Representational image PTI But on the basis of the evidence collected by the investigators so far on their own the police in its report has failed to pinpoint anyone who the eye witnesses including police personnel and JNU staff had specifically claimed to have seen raising anti-national slogans In its report sent to the Commissioner’s office on Sunday the police also maintained that they "did not enter into the JNU complex without requisition from the concerned authorities" sources said The report also specifically lists 29 slogans which were witnessed to have been raised at the event and the list doesn’t include the "Pakistan Zindabad" phrase which was mentioned in the statement attached with the FIR registered on the basis of a video clip obtained from a news channel they said The same slogan was also mentioned in a status report prepared by the police soon after the arrest of Kanhaiya Kumar Citing the findings of the internal inquiry committee of JNU the police in its report said that evidence against the eight students include misinterpretation of the proposed event as a cultural evening forcibly holding the event despite the permission being withdrawn creating law & order situation in the campus and raising unconstitutional slogans In the report the police also said that local police present at the event witnessed unabated raising of anti-national and unconstitutional slogans by one group while the another group was countering them they said But the report still fails to clarify who were the ones actually involved in such sloganeering The list of evidence collected by the investigators against JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar include his "presence" in a group raising unconstitutional and anti-national slogans attributed to eye-witnesses and the news channel video clip on the basis of which the sedition case was registered The report has also mentioned Umar Khalid and Anirban as the main organisers of the event but again did not specify whether the two of them were particularly spotted raising anti-national slogans Five JNU students including Umar Khalid who the police were looking out for across cities resurfaced in the varsity’s campus on Sunday night but the police have not arrested them yet In an apparent U-turn in the police’s approach in the case senior officials now claim that they are waiting for the students to surrender on their own but the five have ruled it out Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi had on Monday said that the final call will be taken by the investigating officer of the case and to enter the
