The Centre may have assured the protesters that the "ecological flow" will be restored, but this can't be done without revisiting the water sharing agreement between five states.
Union Minister R. Prasad gave this assurance to the members of Yamuna Muktikaran Padyatra, undertaken for making Yamuna pollution free.
100,000 people are expected to participate in a third march protesting the condition of the sacred river Yamuna this spring – and this time, organizers say, they will not budge or negotiate with the government. Two previous marches in 2011 and 2013 yielded some results -- for instance, the government agreed to construct a sewage canal to stop Delhi drains discharging pollutants and sewer waste into the river.
Starting March 15th, once again, more than 100,000 Vrajavasis, devotees, farmers and people from various organizations will march from Vrindavan to Delhi to stop the abuse of the Yamuna River. This Pada Yatra represents a turning point in the popular Save Yamuna Campaign and takes place under the name “Yamuna Muktikaran Abhiyan”.
