Tura, Feb 25: Like several other tourist spots in the pristine Garo Hills, South West Garo Hills’ Chimite Lake has also become a lair for drinking alcohol and more. Chimite Lake located at Nogorpara was found littered with several liquor bottles.
A resident of Tura who recently visited the lake with his family, expressed his annoyance when they saw the state of the lake.
“The lake is such a scenic place with tremendous potential for tourism. It has a huge amount of wildlife coming to visit the place. However when we saw the bottles of liquor lying around, we really felt annoyed,” said the Tura resident.
The matter was then informed to the Deputy Commissioner of SWGH, Ram Kumar S who stated that he would take up the matter and ensure awareness was spread to stop the littering.
The situation in other tourist attractions across the district is also similar. Cases of bottle littering have been reported from all over the region.
