Dozens of villages in West UP lead hellish lives as a highly polluting industry has killed the river irrigating their region and has contaminated groundwater+soil to the extent they've given up groundwater consumption entirely.

My report for @SwarajyaMag coming shortly.
#Meerut's slaughterhouses first killed their river.

Now meat plants have contaminated their groundwater to the extent that they had to stop its use entirely.

My report from Western #UttarPradesh of a highly polluting industry and the state's abdication. swarajyamag.com/politics/groun…
This is state of groundwater in villages affected by slaughterhouses and meat plants in #Meerut's #Kharkhauda.

Govt has set up overhead water tanks away from villages with piped connections to villages BUT that's it. Villagers maintain those tanks w/ their own money.
