On fast for six months, Atmabodhanand warns: Will up water for clean Ganga if govt doesn't listen

An open warning young saint Atmabodhand, on fast in Haridwar for ensuring clean Ganga for the last about six months, has said that he would give up even water if by March 25 the Government of India does not concede to his demands. Bringing this to light, Matu Jansangathan, an Uttarakhand-based civil rights organization, has regretted, quoting the saint, that no representative of the government has come to talk to him so far.
In a statement, Matu Jansangathan said, the government “has neglected his demands for the past six months”, it is “not talking to him nor is replying to him in writing”, adding, “In a democracy this is a shameful act seeking to circumvent constitutional and moral force of non-violent movements.”
Recalling that on October 11, 2018, Swami Sanand wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi before he died in a government hospital in Rishikesh, the civil rights body said, Modi never cared to send a reply. “The government has not taken any concrete positive steps on the main demands of Swamy Sanand, it is continuing with the proposed dams on Ganga, mining of Ganga has not stopped, forests are being removed.”
It added, “At the time of elections, the government has hidden behind the code of conduct, even as heavy mining and stone crushing is continuing around Haridwar, and Ganga is being adversely affected. Worse, the local Haridwar administration appears to have failed to implement the orders of Central Pollution Control Board till date.”
