Workers clear weed from Sukhna Lake. 

Acting on the direction of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the Engineering Department of the Administration has begun removing weeds from Sukhna Lake. 

The department has employed more than 60 employees for the job. The High Court has given two weeks time to remove the weed from Sukhna and asked the Administration to submit status report by September 22. Mukesh Anand, Chief Engineer, said that the department had started the removal of weed. 

The HC Judges along with amicus curie, and officers of the Administration inspected the catchment area last month and asked the Administration to seek suggestions from the public for restoration of the lake.
