Punjab government on the slow track

After CSE raised the issue in 2005, the Punjab government constituted two committees, one was a High Powered Committee and the other an Expert Group. The two committees achieved nothing considerable- while the expert group held one meeting and the High Powered Committee none. The Punjab government ordered a study and immediate health remediation measures. Later, the government had decided to formulate the organic farming policy for the area but not much has happened there either.
