New Delhi, Apr 07 (ANI): To celebrate World Health Day and to mark the beginning of ‘Navratri’, National Mission For Clean Ganga (NMCG) organised the cleaning of Yamuna Ghat at Kalindi Kunj in capital New Delhi on Sunday. Volunteers, especially college-going students, took part in hundreds in the cleanliness drive. Alongside ‘Namami Gange’ volunteers, students from Delhi University, Amity University, IP University among others as well as volunteers from Gautam Gambhir Foundation took part in the drive in large numbers. Excited at the turn out of students and youths in the drive to clean a Yamuna Ghat, Rajiv Ranjan Mishra, the Director-General of NMCG, highlighted the importance of youth joining the movement to rejuvenate the holy river. The students too were happy to take part in the cleanliness drive as they said it was high time to take initiatives to save the river on which millions of lives depend directly or indirectly. NMCG has adopted the Kalindi Kunj Ghat of Yamuna in New Delhi and they clean the ghat on a regular basis. But the large turnout of the students this time around was heartening for the NMCG team, who aim at wider public participation, and especially that of the youth, in the process of keeping the pious river clean.
