Bhopal, March 12: Praising Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan RSS Chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat said that Narmada Seva Yatra is a campaign to wake up the entire India. The Yatra is the biggest example of doing one’s Karma with complete faith. RSS Sarsanghachalak was addressing a Jansamvad during the ‘Namami Devi Narmade’ Seva Yatra on Saturday.
Dr. Bhagwat further said that in no other country a river is referred to as ‘mother’. In our country, we consider rivers as our mother and offer prayers even to trees and plants. We see God in everything and believe in the unity of the world. Narmada river gives us her nature and life. Such Yatra inspires the whole country.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shivraj said that lakhs of people would plant saplings in the rainy season under the Narmada Seva Yatra in one day on both the banks of the Narmada River from Amarkantak to Badwani. CM said that Narmada Seva Yatra is a unique Yatra. Thanks to Narmada, Madhya Pradesh leads in production of grains. Narmada provides us drinking water, irrigation, power and employment. Felling of trees on the banks since the last 50 years has adversely affected its water flow.
He said that people must resolve to plant saplings on both the banks of the Narmada. Farmers should plant fruit bearing trees on their land; they will be given financial assistance Rs 20,000 per hectare for four years. Sewage treatment plants will be set up in all cities on the Narmada banks. He urged people to resolve not to immerse pujan material into the Narmada. For this purpose, pujan kund have been made on the banks of the Narmada.
