Haridwar, August 21
Matra Sadan founder Swami Shivanand today reiterated his resolve to launch an indefinite fast to save the Ganga and demand an unbiased probe by a CBI team into the death of Swami Nigamanand.
Swami Shivanand alleged that CBI officials submitted the closure report in the Swami Nigamanand death case without investigating all aspects. His another major demand is regarding the protection of the Kumbh mela land.
Meanwhile, the CPM has extended support to Swami Shivanand’s agitation.
Two doctors from Rishikul Ayurvedic College today checked the pulse of Swami Shivanand, which was normal, and also measured his weight.
Member of the State Council of the CPM Mahendra Singh Verma also gave a letter of support to Swami Shivanand from the party’s side. Verma said Matra Sadan had always been working for social causes and people should come forward to support this.
A four-member delegation from Gujarat also visited Matra Sadan and extended support to the pro-Ganga movement carried out by Matra Sadan.
Despite no communication from government side, support is pouring in for the agitation from various other organisations, Ganga devotees, social activists and common people.
