Matri Sadan Seers Oppose Dredging in Ganga

Posted on August 28, 2015

Matri Sadan seers have taken objection to the Uttarakhand administration seeking the Centre’s nod for dredging in the Ganga and its tributaries in Haridwar.

The seers have written a strong letter to state forest minister Dinesh Agrawal on the issue. Swami Shivanand has rejected the suggestion that there is a threat of Ganga swelling and flooding Haridwar due to deposition of sand and boulders in the river.

“The forest department, which alleges that the Ganga and its tributaries are turning towards the Haridwar city and might damages villages on their banks, must remember that if that happens, it would not be due to deposition of material in their middle, as it apprehends, but due to the mining done to remove these,” Shivanand said.
