This is the photo which I have taken 3 years back at Tinau river, Butwal Nepal. The river Tinau, has been providing employment to thousands of poor people and lucrative benefits to few crushers and businessmen. The excavation of sands and stones from the river and its legal (illegal) export to India, has many environmental impacts too. In the photo, we can see that the people have already excavated the sand from the underneath a development activities. In the picture, we can see that it is the "NAHAR HEAD (Canal Head)" of Tinau river on the past, from where already sand and gravels taken away. This is very risky to the worker also because anytime the upperstructure could be broken and buried them! Also, on the backgrounds we can see many houses on the middle of Tinau river. This place used to be one corpse burying places (Chihanghari) and many times the TINAU FLOODS had swaped it.
Is there any controlling organisation? Does BUTWAL Municapality or District Development Committe, Rupandehi have any responsibility? If some accidents happened then who should be blamed! Also,
