Sant Seechewal had written a letter to the department of environment

Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal today held a meeting at Chandigarh with the Chief Secretary of science, technology and environment Punjab sh R.K  Verma on the issue of enforcement of the orders of Honorable NGT to stop pollution in Sutlej and Beas rivers and on playing with the right to health and life of the people. A few days before, on the condition of the waters of Punjab, Sant Seechewal had written a letter to the department of environment. Acting on that letter the concerned department today held the meeting.
The contents of the letter written by Sant Seechewal Briefing about the present waters condition of Punjab Sant Seechewal brought into the notice of the Chief Secretary that the poisonous waters through Buddah Nullah, Chitti Bein and Kala Sangian drain and Phagwara drain are falling in Sutlej river.
The people living around Kala Sangian drain and Chitti Bein are becoming prey to cancer in large numbers. In these villages people are mostly effected with cancer, skin and kidney and many more type of diseases. Many people have died with such diseases. People are dying of cancer and other dangerous diseases due to poisonous water of Buddha Nullah that is falling in Sutlej river.
On the hearing of the writ petition of Smt. Shobha Singh and others of Rajasthan, National Green Tribunal had constituted a monitoring committee. The report on the meetings of this committee was submitted to NGT on 31st October 2018. Taking action on this report NGT while giving its decision had fined the Punjab Government for rupees 50 crores and also instructed the government to save the Punjab rivers and other natural resources from destruction. Even after this decision the concerned officials have not taken the needed action that might have given some relief to the affected people.
We had personally inspected the treatment plants in the cities. The condition of these plants is very miserable. These plants are not working to its capacity and most of them are not working and they are bypassing untreated water. Punjab Government has spent crores of rupees on these plants but no benefit people are getting from these plants. The concerned officials have been making fools of the NGT and the people and putting people's lives in danger. So, the responsible officials should be made answerable so that the treatment plants worth crores should run properly and the people residing on the banks of natural resources may get relief.

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…

Means due to global warming the snow laden peaks of the hills have melted and the increase in the level of the sea, many islands in the low lying areas have drowned in the sea. If such behavior continues then low lying nations will become prey to the sea. These are the big changes which are visible in the world and its affect is also visible. 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…
