Several Hindu monks also accompanied Baba Ramdev in this crusade.


"The aim is that, seven days ago, a letter had been written to President that if government doesn't take any action for the assurance of the purity and cleanliness of the River Ganga and also if the government doesn't take any action to stop the ongoing and upcoming projects over the river we will stage a protest in Haridwar," said Baba Ramdev.


He further rued that the government has done nothing so far and said he is waiting for a favourable response from the authorities.


"When the government failed to fulfil their responsibilities in the given three to seven days time, we were compelled to take this step, so that the government may take steps for the transparency and cleanliness of the River Ganga," he said.


The Uttarakhand state has planned to build 300 large and small dams on the various tributaries of the River Ganga to generate hydel power. (ANI)
