The Jalangi River (India)’s pollution tens to increase the stench in the adjacent locality and the river environment


Residents are worried about the water pollution of the Jalangi River in the Tehatt area of Nadia, West Bengal, India. Since the river has started polluting, the plague of extinct fish species has begun.

A few weeks ago, a handful of fish carcasses floated in the Jalangi River. Now the number is thousands. The Save the River Committee members from the entire Tehatta people are worried about this.

On the one hand, the water of the Jalangi has turned black due to the water entering cotton residue from the Murshidabad. Another hand, the watercolor is also changing due to the addition of jute rotting in the river water. Overall, the river water is continuously being polluted.

Residents said that the water of the Jalangi River has turned black like sewage water in some places along the river flow like Taranagar, Nishchintpur, Raghunathpur, and Ishwarchandrapur area.

The river’s dead fish floated in this dirty water until a few days ago. Eight to 80 – People of all ages have seen fishing. However, different species of dead fish are now gathering on one side of the river. Along with the foul smell, the pollution is also increasing.

Residents Sanjeev Haldar and Dipankar Haldar reported that the market was flooded with river fish a week ago. Ordinary people rushed to buy that fish. Nevertheless, now they have gone back a bit.

Fishermen reported that the number of Punti, Kalbosh, Tangra, and Ban fish is high among all the fish available from the river.

Nevertheless, the taste is not available due to rotten water. Dead fish from this polluted water is not selling in the market.

Fishermen further claim that jute is being put into the river to rot, and the farmers use a special chemical powder to rot the jute quickly. By this, the fish are dying along with the pollution of the river.

In this regard, Anand Kumar Mitra, Agriculture Officer in Tehatta, said, ‘Farmers have asked to use fungal culture to rot jute quickly. Moreover, it applies to non-current water bodies.

However, there is no possibility of pollution if applied to the river. However, the river water may be polluted if the jute rots. However, environmentalists said that even then, the river ecosystem would collapse unless proper measures are taken.

District Magistrate Shashank Shetty informed that he had received all departmental administrative reports. An application will already be sent to the Murshidabad district administration to take the necessary steps. The remaining issues will discuss with the local administration, and action will take.
