Eco-activists urge government to save Yamuna river

Vrindavan, Sep 19 (IANS) Eco-activists of the Yamuna basin area, from Delhi to Taj city Agra in Uttar Pradesh, have raised an alarm over failure of the state and central governments 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, 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 ecological balance.
