Resignation from NGRBA
Dated : 10th March, 2012

To,
Respected, Dr. Man Mohan Singh
Prime Minister of India &
Chairman, NGRBA

Sir,
We are sending this letter of resignation as we are deeply concerned and worried about the fast deteriorating health condition of Prof. G.D. Agarwal (now Swami Gyan Swarup Sanand) , an eminent scientist who served with distinction at IIT, Kanpur and Central Pollution Control Board. He has been consistently campaigning for several years to save the Holy River Ganga. He had undertaken fast on January 14, 2012 and has even stopped taking water from 8th March, 2012. He is at present sitting at the bank of Ganga at Varanasi. His health is extremely critical. We have been requesting the Government to immediately intervene but no action has been taken so far.

We sincerely feel that any further delay and lack of response from the Government may result in grave tragedy which will be unpardonable. We also feel at this juncture, our moral responsibility to fully support the cause of River Ganga for which Prof. Agarwal is struggling.

We may humbly point out that though the Authority has been constituted nearly three years back but it has met only twice. There has been no meeting for the last one and a half year in spite of our repeated requests. It is also on record that no worthwhile action has been taken by the Authority on any of the critical issues concerning the River Ganga. The Government has also not fulfilled any of its promises: the pollution in the river Ganga continues and more and more projects are being approved which are adversely affecting the flow in the river. We have been consistently emphasizing that the ‘ecological flow’- Aviral’ in the river Ganga should be maintained but no steps has been taken by the Government to ensure that.

In the circumstances, we consider it our duty towards the holy river Ganga and people of this country to resign as Member of The National Ganga River Basin Authority, forthwith and continue our movement for preservation and protection of the river Ganga in support of Prof. G.D. Agrawal (Swami Gyan Swarup Sanand at Sri Vidyamath, Kedar Ghat, Varanasi).

With Regards.
