Hyderabad: On World Setting Day, environmental and human rights activists organized the motion to save lots of the dual reservoirs of Himayatsagar and Osmansagar. An activist organized various kinds of exercise at Lamakaan’s ‘Jal Jeevan- Save our Sagars’ occasion, with dance, rappers, and beat-boxers acting on the theme of defending them, and the GO 111 act, on Sunday.
On World Setting Day, environmental and human rights campaigners expressed their perception that local weather change can’t be decreased except the disaster confronting democracy all over the world is addressed.
A social activist and Ramon Magsaysay awardee, Dr Sandeep Panday, spoke on the occasion and drew a parallel between the Varuna and Assi rivers in Varanasi and the Musi River, predicting that Musi may endure the identical destiny as these two rivers, which had became sewage channels and had been not seen resulting from large-scale development.
He claimed that by rebranding the Ministry of Water Sources as ‘Jal Shakti,’ the Centre had signalled that rivers can be utilized to create energy, regardless of the nation’s opposition to massive dams.
On the state’s disregard for environmentalists’ considerations, he has identified how the NDA administration allowed an excellent environmentalist like Dr GD Agarwal to die after he went on a 112-day quick in 2018, demanding that the Centre fulfil its pledges to save lots of the Ganga. “Musi is nothing when a river like Ganga can’t be spared. We are able to’t safeguard the setting except our nation’s insurance policies change,” he remarked.
The state authorities is planning to desert the Musi River and switch it right into a sewage channel, in accordance with Dr Babu Rao of the Human Rights Discussion board, and the state authorities is shutting down Osmansagar and Himayatsagar, even supposing they contribute extra water than all of Telangana’s cities mixed.
