Lucknow: In a bid to sensitise people over
river pollution and to ascertain the status of Gomti River, a
Gomti-Ganga Yatra would be launched from Pilibhit on March 27.

"A campaign is being launched to lessen pollution in
Gomti River and to restore its natural form and flow. It will
be launched from Pilibhit, from where it originates, on March
27," coordinator of the yatra Narendra Malhotra said.

He said the yatra would cover 960 kms and would culminate
at Markandeshwar where Gomti meets Ganga river.

"During this campaign we will not only sensitise people
but will also carry out other activities like cleaning the
river, planting saplings alongside its bed," said Brijendra,
secretary of Lok Bharati, the organisation coordinating the
event.

Malhotra said that during the campaign a status report
of the river would be prepared and submitted to the
government.
