Human chains formed along Yamuna to protect river from severe pollution

Human chains formed along Yamuna to protect river from severe pollution

New Delhi: As part of a citizen-driven movement to protect the Yamuna River from severe pollution, a sizable crowd gathered along its banks early on Sunday morning to create a human chain.

In numerous locations, including ITO, Wazirabad, Kalindikunj, Geeta Colony, and Old Usmanpur, people formed human chains as part of the "Yamuna Sansad" effort to call for the river's revitalization after being overburdened by sewage and industrial garbage poured into it.

A large number of representatives of social, cultural and religious organisations too participated in the campaign.

Many politicians, including former BJP organisation secretary Govindacharya, Delhi AAP convener and Arvind Kejriwal government minister Gopal Rai, and Delhi BJP chief Virendra Sachdeva, too attended the campaign.

‘Yamuna Sansad’ convener Ravi Shankar Tiwari said the human chain was formed expressing peoples’ resolve to contribute to reviving the Yamuna that has been “rendered into a drain despite years of efforts by governments to clean it”.
