Beaches are cleaned on a daily basis, claims BMC

The BMC has informed the Bombay High Court that the authorities concerned are keeping the beaches of the city clean on a daily basis. An affidavit filed in response to a public interest litigation filed by a NGO Janhit Manch states that "the corporation has also made arrangement for cleaning the beaches by the beach cleaning machine daily'. The petitioner had moved court seeking to restrain immersion of idols and Nirmalya or Pooja materials during festivals which pollute the waters.
