Haridwar : 17 February, 2016
Saints observing a fast to protest insufficient water level at Ganga ghats of Sapt Sarovar-Bhoopatwala today gave up their agitation on an assurance by District Magistrate Harbans Singh Chugh .
A section of saints, under the aegis of the Akhil Bharatiya Sanatan Sant Samaj, were on an agitation for the past six days, demanding adequate water level at Ganga ghats.
Due to paucity of water at these Ganga ghats, saints as well as pilgrims were facing inconvenience in performing rituals.
The District Magistrate arrived at the agitation venue and after discussions with the saints for half an hour, assured them of providing adequate water supply at the ghats within 10 days.
Chugh said he would hold talks with the officials concerned to ensure sufficient water level at Ganga ghats in Saptsarovar Bhoopatwala stretch.
Bhooma Niketan ashram spiritual head Swami Achutyanand Teerth Maharaj said the Ganga’s sanctity and purity was not being maintained, thus hurting the sentiments of the saint community and devotees.
He also urged the Centre and the Uttarakhand Government to take sincere steps in this regard and called for an on- field inspection of the projects being carried out under the ‘Namami Gange’ project.
Former Union Minister of state for Home Affairs state Minister Swami Chinmayanad Maharaj said Ganga ghats at Saptsarovar-Bhoopatwala and adjacent areas were constructed during 1992 and 1998 Maha Kumbh. Some of these ghats were funded by saints.
But it was a matter of concern that these were devoid of sufficient water, which directly put pressure on sanctum sanctorum of Brahma Kund Har-ki-Pauri, he added.
Former municipal chairperson Satpal Brahamchari also stressed on cleaning of the Ganga ghats. The Tribune
