#Thread: History of #DoonValley
Limestone quarrying was widely prevalent in Valley during the 80s. In order to give an economic push, it was the then Govt of UP that promoted limestone quarrying in the pristine hills of #Mussorie, giving rise to pollution and health hazards.
But, very few know that #Mussoorie was one of the favorite spots for JL Nehru and Indira Gandhi. In fact, it was Indira Gandhi that took the bold step to impose a blanket ban on limestone quarrying in the #DoonValley. Locals hailed this move and praised the then PM Indira Gandhi.
It has been written and recalled by the locals that while going to #Mussorie in her helicopter, Indira Gandhi saw the large stretches of dusty mountains and uprooted trees that moved her to introduce the ban for the limestone quarries in the #DoonValley.
