Basic Sanitation & control over Pollution

Today more than 2 billion people around the world lack access to basic sanitation services. An estimated 42,000 people die every week from absence of adequate sanitation, according to Ban Ki Moon, the UN Secretary General. Every day over 30,000 trucks carry iron ore to Paradeep port in Odisha.

More than 200 people die every year in this exhaustive process of mining. The resultant dust & noise force thousands of people. Due to lack of control over environment, there have natural disasters increase day by day. By an investigation it estimate that on October, 2005, in Jammu & Kashmir and North part of Pakistan there have more than 78,000 people were died due to earth quack.

The draught  flood in Odisha every year killed thousands of people & their habitats. Though there have so many plan & programmes implemented in different states to control pollution & maintain proper sanitation all are remaining only in paper.
