Jammu: Seeking intervention, the Environment Committee of Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly today asked the state government to take up issues related to environment on priority.

The committee, which met here under chairmanship of MLA Nizam-ud-Din Bhat, said that prior to submission of the final report to the House, some immediate measures are needed to be taken to save the state from economic and geographical disaster.

The committee suggested that declining water table and natural beauty of the state, particularly the Kashmir valley, demands focused attention.

It was also suggested that guidance should be sought from the Union Ministry of Environment and efforts should be made to find out models, which can help the state in planning the environment management.
