More than 40 children aged 6-12 living on the Ganga ghats swam across the river and collected polybags and worship materials floating on the surface of the river. They were participating in the second leg of Eco Friends Clean Ganga Campaign here at Golaghat on Monday. The polybags and worship materials thus collected were buried in a pit. The children named Barro, Pappu, Sunny, Billo, Komal and Shubham cajoled the devotees not to thrown polybags in the river as they were ecologically damaging. Banners such as Don’t offer plastic but prayers to Ganga and Ganga is gasping for breath were also displayed at the ghat. People visiting the ghats were distributed pamphlets as well. These pamphlets urged the masses to listen to the wails of Ganga and save it from a slow death.

At Shuklaganj ghat, members of Eco Friends ferried on boats and raised slogans to spread the Ganga depollution message. Polybags and other waste was taken out from the river and dumped in pits. The members also explained the people visiting the ghats the necessity to keep Ganga clean. Mohammad Owais, Archana Jaiswal, Namita Singh, Piyush Jaiswal, Abdul Shamim and Sagarika Srivastava were the main participants in today’s campaign.
