Why Environmental Activist GD Agarwal Fasted Until He Died

Environmental activist GD Agarwal died after carrying out a 111-day hunger strike to protest government inaction on cleaning up the Ganga. Agarwal held a PhD in environmental engineering from the University of California in Berkeley and dedicated his life to saving the river. Prime Minister Narendra Modi offered his 'condolences' after Agarwal died.

    100s of crores have been spent by various govts.for eradication of pollution of Holy Ganga but to no avail. Rajiv Gandhi started GAP about 35 years back. There is no point to blame Modi ji for it. As per the reports of last few weeks, Ganga water pollution has been decreased to a large extent. Therefore, it is the human activity including गँगा स्नान which is responsible for its pollution. And no government can stop it. Only the public awareness.

    GD. alone could not carry out this, they had to accompany him, what one alone cannot, in a group it is achieved.

    Never heard before. Again dirty trick. Modi Ji definitely did a lot for restoration and rejuvenation of Ganga ji. Creating water way is not a insulting idea. The old man should do what he likes.
