- 18th year of success of the ‘Khadakvasla Jalashay Rakshan Abhiyan’ at Pune
- Pollution of the Khadakvasla dam curbed by a human chain and educating society about it
Pune – Bathing in the dam waters after playing with colours, on the occasions of Dhulivandan and Rangapanchami is not in keeping with the Scriptures. To stop malpractices on the pretext of Hindu festivals and to understand Hindu Scriptures correctly, for several years the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is educating society. The ‘Khadakvasla Jalashay Rakshan Abhiyan’ is being organised on behalf of the Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, Sanatan Sanstha, Cummins India Ltd. Pune and like-minded organisations. This is the 18th consecutive year of this campaign. The purpose of the campaign was to prevent pollution of drinking water from the dam by bathing there after playing with colours on the occasion of Holi, by forming a human chain and educating the public in this regard.
Success of the campaign
This year too a human chain was created from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. with participants displaying thought-provoking banners. Young men and women smeared with colours after playing Holi were educated about pollution of the dam waters by these colours and were prevented from bathing there. This year too as usual this campaign met with 100% success. In all around 150 volunteers were a part of this campaign. In fact the campaign attained an expansive form with participation of people from all walks of life. This campaign will continue on the day of Rangapanchami, March 13, 2020.
