Human Rights Forum (Andhra Pradesh) State secretary Y.

Mr. Rajesh, accompanied by HRF members, conducted a field-level investigation on Wednesday during which they inspected the illegal aqua ponds that were dug up at Moolagondi and Antarvedi temple surroundings, and Kara village in Sakhinetipalli mandal.

“The district-level committee on aquaculture should demolish the illegal aqua ponds that pose a threat to the adjacent mangrove cover and the groundwater table,” Mr. Rajesh said. HRF district president Mutyala Srinivas was present.
