Nana Patekar launched Jal Jan Abhiyan
The launch program of Jal Jan Abhiyan was organized at Brahmakumari Sansthan Abu Road in Sirohi district of Rajasthan on Thursday. Film actor Padma Shri Nana Patekar participated in the programme. Addressing the programme, Nana Patekar said that the country has a lot of water problems. Maharashtra also has water problem. But the biggest problem for these countries is population growth. The country’s population is constantly growing. Previously, the population was 35 million, but now it has reached 135 million. He said that our resources are limited. Land is limited and water is limited. In such a situation, measures should be taken to stop the increase in population in the country.
Expresses concern over water shortage in Maharashtra
Padma Shri Nana Patekar said that the families of the suicide victims in the Maharashtra farmer suicide case are facing a food crisis that needs to be addressed. He said there is water scarcity in Maharashtra. But it’s a pity that nature always gives everything. We are not using resources properly. Our problem is that as soon as the children grow up, they move towards the city. After that they do not return to the village. Regarding farming, Patekar said that we should do farming in a new way and this migration should end. Jal Jan Abhiyan is run under the joint auspices of Brahmakumari Sansthan and Jal Shakti Ministry. As part of this action, water sources will be renewed throughout the country. As part of this campaign, people associated with Brahmakumaris Sansthan and Jal Shakti Ministry will work for eight months to save more than five thousand water bodies across the country. At the same time, the population will be informed about the construction of new reservoirs through water promotion. The campaign aims to reach 10 million people by organizing 10,000 programs.
