Tapi clean-up campaign to be intensified

The Tapi Shuddhikaran Samiti (TSS), a voluntary organization, has decided to launch a vigorous campaign for river cleansing.

Under the campaign, programmes like formation of 10km-15km-long human chain are planned to draw the attention of administrators to urge them to formulate a special policy for Tapi cleanliness.

They will also hold symbolic programmes like handing over memorandum to statues of Gandhiji, Sardar Patel, Narmad and others to press on the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) and district authorities.

Anil Chauhan, president of the samiti, said, “We also plan to organize a dharna at SMC waste disposal outlets that open into Tapi River.

A programme will also be held at creeks whose polluted water flows in the river. It is high time we take concrete action.”
Sachin Dave, national convener of Students for Development (SFD), said, “A massive public opinion needs to be created about the cleanliness of Tapi River and we would start doing it with the help of TSS. Administrators must be compelled to make a policy for keeping our river clean.”
