Prime minister’s inspiration, our efforts …..come, let us conserve water and protect environment – Anil Madhav Dave
Addressing the people through the radio programme “Mann Ki Baat”, Modi gave the call to revive the old tradition to protect the environment, water bodies and also the tiny species living in water from the scourge of pollution.
The Prime Minister said that celebrating Ganeshotsav in an eco-friendly manner would be social service.
Following Prime Minister’s call, idols of Ganesh are being made with natural clay across the country. A similar initiative under the aegis of ‘Narmada Samagra’ has been organised through a workshop – ‘Aao banaayen apne haathon se apne Ganesh ki moorti’ (Come, let us make with our own hands, idols of Ganesh) at various places along River Narmada. During the workshop being organised by Bhopal-based, ‘Narmada Samagra’, Minister of State (Independent Charge) of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Anil Madhav Dave, inspired children to make idols from natural clay. “Prerna Pradhan Mantri ki, prayaas hamara, aao bachayen paani aur paryavaran” (Prime Minister’s inspiration, our efforts…..Come, let us conserve water and protect environment), Dave said on the occasion.
The workshop will continue in Bhopal till 4 September. Thousands of children from Amarkantak to Bharuch have been imparted training through the workshop.
