Pollution mars Dehra Duns beauty

Unplanned urbanisation, environmental degradation and lack of interest shown by the government to prevent its traditional sanctity are deteriorating the natural beauty of Dehra Dun. Ever since Uttarakhand came into existence on November 9, 2000, and Dehra Dun became the capital, all sorts of activities in the city have increased manifolds, which mainly have aggravated the pollution problems.
