The Allahabad high court has directed the Uttar Pradesh government to ensure uninterrupted power supply to all installations created under the Ganga Action Plan. A division bench, comprising Justice Giridhar Malviya and Justice K D Sahi, asked the authorities to report to the court about the action taken in this connection. They also directed the senior superintendent of police, Kanpur, to set up a river police section in the district to tackle pollution. The court passed this order on a public interest litigation petition of Rakesh Kumar Jaiswal of Kanpur.
