Save Yamuna: Eco-activists pressurize government

Vrindavan: Eco-activists of the Yamuna river, from Delhi to Agra in Uttar Pradesh, brings to fore that the state government and Centre have failed to control pollution and free the flood-plains from encroachments to save the river.

Spiritual leader of Vrindavan Goswami Sri Vats said the stake-holders must come together and the devotees of Sri Krishn-Radha should work together for a better “cleaner and greener” Braj area.

The activists said in the name of development, only concretization of the landscape was being promoted.

In the process, the water bodies, the dense forests, and the ancient ghats have all disappeared, the activists opined.

“This is resulting in a freak weather, abrupt rains or dry weather or hail storms. We are moving on a suicidal course,” said Jagan Nath Poddar, convener of the Friends of Vrindavan.

The saints and seers of the Braj area, the learned spiritual leaders, ISKCON members, artistes and musicians of the area collectively demanded urgent and firm steps to conserve nature and restore the ecological balance.
