The Ganga Action Parivar (GAP) has taken primary steps towards constructing the first zero-waste, “bio-digester” toilet in Uttar Pradesh along the banks of the Ganga.

The initiative is part of GAP’s drive to build 5,000 eco-friendly toilets in villages along the 2,500-km stretch of the Ganga and also integrates its “Green Kashi and Green Prayag” campaign. A special “brick puja” was performed by the organisers on the banks of the Ganga on Tuesday.

Green Kumbh initiative must continue even after the mela, says Swami Chidanand Saraswati

Even as lakhs of devotees took a holy dip at the Sangam on Paush Purnima on Sunday, Swami Chidanand Saraswati of Parmarth Niketan, Rishikesh, the force behind the Clean Ganga campaign, expressed his satisfaction over the ongoing ‘Green Kumbh’ initiative. Terming it a “great beginning” to a clean and green Ganga, the organiser said the change was visible on the second ritual bathing of this Kumbh.

Farmers’ protest against the proposed 1,980-MW power plant in the trans-Yamuna Karchhna tehsil of Allahabad district entered its 777th day on Tuesday.

While the district administration recently served a month’s ultimatum on the farmers to return the compensation they had received for land acquisition, the farmers told The Hindu that they would not be able to repay the amount, regardless of the ultimatum. Meanwhile, they say they will continue agitating at the proposed site, where they assemble daily under the banner of Punrvas Kisan Kalyan Sahayata Samiti. “On Tuesday, it is 777 days,” said Kisan Andolan president Raj Bahadur Patel.
