‘Marriage ceremonies at Nageen Club detrimental to its health’

SRINAGAR: Nageen Club, one of the oldest and elite clubs in Kashmir is becoming a victim of neglect and indifference.
The club is situated on the banks of world famous Nageen Lake and has a very popular place among foreign and domestic tourists.
According to a statement issued by the Nageen Club, its members on Sunday held a meeting in which the affairs of the club were discussed at length.
In the meeting, the members deliberated upon various issues pertaining to the functioning of the club. They discussed the matters related to inappropriate upkeep and the improper facilities to the club members.
The members discussed at threadbare the issue of marriage ceremonies which are taking place in the club premises that are proving detrimental to the health and environment of this elite club and the adjacent lake, the statement said.
It said the waste generated by marriage ceremonies most importantly by slaughtering of livestock, culling of poultry and the leftover wazwan which finds its way straight to the lake is proving not only a threat to the very existence of this lake but is also inviting the attention of canines, kites and crows thus making the lake and its adjutant areas environmentally fragile and vulnerable.
In the meeting, it was decided that a delegation of club members will meet the Advisor to Governor Khurshid Ganai and bring these issues into his notice so that the club and the adjacent lake is saved from any damages, the statement said.
