Green rules choking Pulicat lake PV PRASAD Nellore: Dredging of the three sea mouths of Pulicat lake, the second largest brackish water body, is being hindered by wildlife rules made for protecting the bird sanctuary which a home to a variety of ﬂora and fauna. The lake system has not been getting adequate fresh water ﬂow which is making it face the prospect of drying up. Thanks to rules of the eco-sensitive zone, no dredging activity is being allowed. The 481-square kilometre lake is an important habitation for 160 different ﬁsh species and more than 110 varieties of terrestrial and aquatic birds, small mammals and reptiles. More than 60,000 migrant water birds, including ﬂamingos, visit the northern part of the lake in winter and the state government has been celebrating Flamingo Festival every year. Nearly 40,000 people who are living in 34 villages on the Tamil Nadu side and 25,000 people existing in 15 habitations in Andhra Pradesh depend on ﬁshing in the lake system for livelihood.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu promised Rs 48 crore for opening the mouths for free ﬂow of water into the lake system in January. Since then, the issue has been a subject of debate. In fact, the three sea mouths at Tupilipalem, Pudirayadoruvu in Vakadu mandal and also at Pulicat village in Tamil Nadu where these vents have been gradually closing with sand bar formation. The National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) earlier recommended opening of north mouth close to Rayadoruvu village in Vakadu mandal to improve water ﬂow into the northern part of the lake by constructing two walls to prevent closure of the sea mouth. Visakhapatnam: The Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is probing the sensational murders of MLA Kidari Sarveswara Rao and former MLA Siveri Soma at Araku valley last week, has managed to get a major clue that might unravel the mystery surrounding how Maoists got to know about the vicitms' movements and why they had eliminated them. According to reliable sources, one Yedela Subba Rao, a follower of slain MLA Sarveswara Rao who is also a close relative of Soma, allegedly passed on the information of their movements to the Maoists. He, however, told the police that he did not know that they were planning to kill them. They told him that the Maoists, whose sympa- thiser he is, threatened him with dire consequences if he did not pass on the information on their movements. The police officials, who interrogated Soma’s relatives and a few other local leaders, now have enough circumstantial evidence to go after Subba Rao to know the whereabouts of the Maoists who killed the two people's representatives.
