In wake of the growing pollution of Sidhwan Canal, a primary irrigation channel flowing through the city of Ludhiana, ‘The Sidhwan canal cleanliness initiative’ organised an awareness walk along Sidhwan on Tuesday, 15 Sept 2015. DJJS MEMR Nature Conservators were invited to join the walk and motivate residents to shoulder their due responsibility for the cleanliness of the water body.
All clad in sea green t- shirts, the nature conservator brigade of DJJS marched along the canal holding educative posters and raising slogans of water conservation. “‘Water is life’, it is a well- known fact universally. However, when polluted with industrial waste, domestic waste and human waste, the same water instead of being a life saver becomes reason for death of many. Hence we advocate ‘CLEAN water is life’”, informed an MEMR Nature Conservator.
At the culmination point, MEMR Nature conservators formed human chain as a symbol calling upon united action for the conservation and management of water resource.
