Subject: Growing Pollution is Growing Worries for Kanpur Sir
This is to bring to your attention that Kanpur has seen a tremendous growth in its population in recent years. I suggest some measures to make Kanpur a place fit for human habitation.
There are many tanneries in Kanpur which are creating problems for the Ganges. These factories release effluent without proper treatment. The smoke coming out of these factories contains many harmful gases. The result is high level of air and water pollution.
This is leading to severe health problems among citizens of Kanpur.
Apart from that, there is further danger to the flora and fauna of surrounding areas. Fish population is depleting which is affecting the fishermen. Soil fertility has decreased leading to poor condition of farmers.
Children from poor families are exploited by the greedy factory owners. This is endangering the present and future of children.
Strict measures should be taken to make tannery owners fall in line. People of Kanpur should be properly educated about the problem. Strict action must be taken against all polluters of Kanpur.
