Yellareddyguda: Natural Resources are lifeline of the mankind, observed Padmashri M C Mehta, a senior advocate at Supreme Court, and noted environmental activists. They opined that mankind and nature are fighting each other which are causing much danger to the natural resources.

A two-day national seminar on 'Climate Change – Environmental Law and Management' was organised by Pendekanti Law College. Mehta said that the melting of Himalayan glaciers was the direct result of environmental degradation. He opined that everything on earth was polluted including the food – either vegetarian or non-vegetarian – due to the use of natural resources due to greed, not need, of the mankind.

Prof K Purushotham Reddy, the former OU Dean (Social Sciences) and eminent environmentalist, participated as the special guest at the function. He opined that the political dispensations were extending support to the corporate sector in exploiting the natural resources like Uranium in way that is detrimental to the ecosystem.

He gave a call to the law students that it was the need of the hour to fight collectively against the environmental issues in tandem with concerned regulatory authorities like Pollution Control Board.

Prof Panth Naik, Dean, Faculty of Law, Osmania University, was the guest of honour. P Rammohan Rao, president of Vasavi Educational Academy, presided over the inaugural function.
