Office-bearers and members of these organizations have vowed to carry out cleaning drive on every Sunday on the banks of Sangam. Devotees, saints and sailors will be made aware about keeping the Ganga clean.
Several organizations, including Prayagwaal Sabha, Narayan Sewa Foundation, Prayag Dharm Sangh, Venimadhav Sewa Sansthan have started cleaning drive at Sangam Nose from July 13.
During the drive between 7 am to 9 am in the morning, members of these organizations remove polythene bags, flowers and garlands, photos of deities and other materials lying on the bank.
The volunteers also make devotees visiting the river aware about harmful effects of throwing such waste materials into the Ganga.
These organizations have urged Municipal Corporation to provide vehicles to remove trashes collected from the river.
According to Rajendra Paliwal, general secretary of Pragwaal, cleaning of Ganga banks even once in a week will make visible differences. Paliwal said that 35-40 people are involved in the cleaning drive at the banks of Sangam.
