Effort to Save Ganga River goes in Vain
It is sad to see someone working for others dies and nobody from the Government seems to be bothered as he was working for a social cause. Everybody is just interested in the House and me too Bollywood business. Environmentalist G.D. Agarwal died while working for a great cause of cleaning Ganga River that is a lifeline of India and everybody wants its water right from after birth till death. The condition Yamuna River is self-explainable and now its Ganga Rivers turn. We are waiting for it dies and even if it will die no one will be much bothered and just complain about it.
G.D. Agarwal was on fast to save Ganga since 22nd June and unfortunately died on Tuesday. He was a former faculty member of the IIT, Kanpur. He gave up drinking water since 9th October and was admitted in a hospital in Rishikesh.
A caretaker, Prem said “I was with him. He was weak but reasonably okay. He was talking. And all of a sudden, he left us. Doctors say that it was because of a heart attack”.
Mr. Agarwal was fighting to save Ganga for years and wanted that the Government to stop the construction of all hydroelectric projects along the Ganga tributaries.
The Government is responsible for his death because he worked for a good cause and he should be taken care of by the Government whether it’s State or Central Government. The Uttrakhand Government forcibly moved him to AIIMS on 10th October where his condition was very bad as he was dehydrated. He was not ready to go to the hospital and suddenly his health condition deteriorated after he heard the news that he will be forcibly sent to the AIIMS.
The CAG report said “National Mission for Clean Ganga could not finalize the long-term action plans even after more than six and half years of the signing of an agreement with the consortium of Indian Institutes of Technology. As a result, National Mission for Clean Ganga does not have a river basin management plan even after a lapse of more than eight years of National Ganga River Basin Authority notification.”
