New Delhi: In a bid to build pressure on the government, celebrities from Bollywood will now join saints and farmers in ‘Save Yamuna’ campaign.

Along with saints and farmers, the movement will include Bollywood actors like Hema Malini and her daughters Esha Deol, Ahana Deol, Vivek Oberoi, Satish Kaushik, and others.

The saints have called a joint protest on May 1 in Delhi, Mumbai and Mathura. The saints have also formed a strategy for the Maha panchayats in this connection.

People living along the Yamuna and other environment friendly persons will join the ‘Save Yamuna’ campaign. Around 10, 000 people from 72 districts are expected to join the movement.

A march is said to begin from Allahabad and reach Jantar Mantar in Delhi where saints and farmers will sit on fast-unto-death. Saints are displeased after they visited Hathni Kund and Wazirabad dams.

Coordinator Swami Jaikrishan Das said that on May 1, they would hold protests at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar, Mumbai’s Juhu and in Mathura and many Bollywood celebrities will also join the movement.
