A barrage on Kala Sangian drain, under the leadership of Sant Seechewal was raised for the first time on 22nd February 2008. An awareness march from Budda Nala, Chitti Bein and Kala Sanghian drain was started in 2009 which went upto Bikaner, where a Cancer hospital is built. Then again on 18th May 2011 a barrage on Kala Sangian drain was raised, where the people from Rajasthan also participated. The National Green Tribunal under the guidance of pollution control Board has been instructed to submit time bound report.

Four years earlier on 28th May 2014 a writ pettition under the leadership of Smt.Shabnam Godara from Hanumangarh Rajasthan was made before the National Green Tribunal, which stated that the contaminated waters from Punjab are spreading cancer in the 8 districts of Rajasthan. Punjab govt. and Punjab Pollution Control Board is not taking any strict action to stop the dumping of poisonous waters in the Sutlej River. Smt.Shabnam Godara said while conversing that as the Punjab govt. is not taking any strict action for the last four years, the National Green Tribunal has decided to form this committee. This decision to form this committee was taken during the hearing on this issue on 23rd July by the NGT. During this hearing Pollution Control Board told that only 466 MLD contaminated water out of 650 MLD is being treated. About 200 MLD of untreated water is going through canals to Rajasthan. National Green Tribunal has given strict instructions that not any type of contaminated and poisonous waters should fall into rivers.

Seechewal Model A Way of Prosperity….

What exactly is Seechewal Model ?

The Punjab like other states of India and the whole world today is facing a great environmental crisis. Ground water level of Punjab is depleting rapidly. All the natural water resources are polluted due to the dumping of untreated and poisonous industrial and domestic wastage into them. As a result of this, people at large are suffering from deadly diseases. Sant Balbir Singh Singh Seechewal has devised "Seechewal model", a simple pipe and pump formula, as an effective solution to this serious problem. It has been implemented at many places including village Seechewal and Sultanpur Lodhi. In fact it has been termed as 'Seechewal Model' by the Government of India. It has been adopted as a model for cleaning the Ganga apart from other rivers of India. Before this, the Government of India dwelled on the other countries for assistance- financial as well as technical. After all such efforts had failed, the need for searching alternatives…

Challenges of Environmental Pollution and its Solutions.

The year 2019 will be a memorable year because of the forthcoming 550th Prakash Purb of Guru Nanak Dev Ji on 12th November.

During these 50 years, what the Pun…

Avtar Gaushala An effort to shelter homeless and speechless animals

Mostly the stray animals become the cause of accidents on the roads. Many valuable lives have been lost due to accidents happening due to stray animals. After all it is a big question that why these milk yielding cows come in the class of stray animals. Until a cow yields milk it is kept in the house and is well served. When it stops yielding milk it is stealthily left on the road to wander. The stray cows have become a big problem but no proper alternative for it is found. To give relief to the historical city Sultanpur lodhi from the stray cows, Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal has made an effort to take care of the stray cows. Started with one stray cow in 2010 Avtar Gau Shala has now more than 150 cows, those left out by the people. Now these cows are milk yielding.The sangats are whole heartedly serving these animals with feed, straw and parali. To save these animals from cold, the sheds with modern facilities have been made. Hardeep Singh, Baba Golu, Kaka and many more sewadars are e…
