Jalyatra for water conservation

RAJKOT: The Sardar Patel Jalyatra which aims to create awareness on water conservation, was flagged off from all talukas in Saurashtra and Kutch. The yatra would travel to all talukas from February 3 to 8.

District development officer PN Patel told TOINS on Thursday that after the taluka-level yatras, the district-level yatra would commence from February 12.

He said that the district panchayat had started work on organising the district yatra which would be on a larger scale. The yatra would spread the message of constructing more check-dams to prevent the rain water from being lost to the sea.

In Jamnagar, as many as nine such jalyatras were flagged off. Jamnagar district collector Girishchandra Murmu said nearly 470 villages would be covered under the yatra. He said if the government and the villagers should work in tandem to ensure that villages became self-reliant in water and that water was stored so that the groundwater level rose. According to Murmu, people from different walks of life including peoples' representatives, social and voluntary organisations, sadhus and taluka and district panchayats chiefs are to participate in the yatra. Plans had been made to organise cultural programmes on every night.

In Amreli, local legislator Bavkubbai Ungad flagged off the yatra which would cover 71 villages. Amreli MP Dileep Sanghani was also present.
