SEEKS SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE TO MAKE IT A MASS MOVEMENT ASSAILS SUCCESSIVE STATE GOVERNMENTS FOR SHAMELESSLY PLUNDERING THE STATE’S WEALTH SAYS HIS GOVERNMENT HAS CHECKED THE PILGERAGE OF PUBLIC MONEY PARTICIPATING IN A FUNCTION TO MARK THE 22ND ANNIVERSARY OF CLEANING OF HOLY KALI BEIN, BHAGWANT MANN DRINKS IT’S WATER AND PLANTS SAPLING ON THE BANK Sultanpur Lodhi (Kapurthala), (Global News) Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann today announced the launch of a statewide campaign to clean rivers and drains of the state. Addressing a gathering here during a function to mark 22nd anniversary of cleaning of holy Kali Bein, the Chief Minister said that Punjab is a sacred land of great Gurus and saints, who have shown us the way to preserve the environment. He said that following in the footsteps of the Gurus, the state government will soon embark upon a massive campaign to clean the natural resources in form of rivers and drains in the state. Bhagwant Mann said that while there is no dearth of funds for this noble cause, he called upon people to support it and make the campaign a mass movement. He also said, that the state government was making concerted efforts to enhance the green cover in the state, for which Shaheed Bhagat Singh Haryiwal Lehar has been started. Bhagwant Mann urged the people to come forward in large numbers this campaign to support the campaign to make Punjab clean, green and pollution free. Quoting from the Gurbani, the chief minister said ‘Pawan Guru, Paani Pitaah, Mata Dharat Mahat’ which explain how our Gurus have equated air (pawan) with teacher, water (paani) with father and land (dharat) with mother. Unfortunately, the word of the Gurus has not been honoured by us, as we have polluted all these three, he added. Bhagwant Mann said that now the time has come when we must imbibe the teachings of Gurbani in letter and spirit to restore the glory of state. The Chief Minister said that the Corona wave has taught us the importance of trees, as people spent huge amount of money to get artificial respiratory system in form of oxygen cylinders. Whereas, trees are our natural source of oxygen so each one of us should focus on planting more and more saplings for enhancing green cover and saving our coming generations.
