Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has directed the environment department to prepare an action plan to check water and air pollution in five major cities in the state.

"An action plan to check air and water pollution in Lucknow, Agra, Kanpur, Varanasi and Ghaziabad should be formulated immediately," Environment Minister Nakul Dubey directed the departmental officials during a review meeting yesterday.

To check pollution, departmental officials should coordinate with district magistrates and ensure strict implementation of bio medical waste rules, he said.

"Regular checking of sewage treatment plans set up in the state should be done and notices should be issued to those guilty," he said.
