Since the lakes of Udaipur are filled to hurl its beauty once again, a prolonged difficulty of keeping it clean has pulled nearly half a dozen social organizations who selflessly work for the conservation of lakes.

On Sunday, September 18, representatives of various NGOs and social organizations gathered at Lake Fateh Sagar to discuss on how to create awareness among masses to keep the lakes of Udaipur dirt free.

Conservationists Join Hands to Clean Udaipur Lakes

The group was led by Nandkishore Sharma, coordinator of Mohan Singh Mehta Memorial Trust, while many nature and lake conservationists including Jyotsna Jhala of Pahal, Haji Mohammad of Jheel Hiteshi Nagrik Manch, TejShankar Paliwal from Chandpol Nagrik Samiti, Ismail Ali Durga from Bohra Youth Association and members of Udaipur against Corruption were also present in the discussion.

The group distributed pamphlets to people visiting the lake. The yellow coloured pamphlet was designed to develop a perception about keeping our lakes clean and what could be the possible options to save the beauty of Udaipur.

Nandkishore Sharma and Jyotsna Jhala shared their views in the discussion that lasted for about two hours. Nandkishore said that at least on Sundays Fateh Sagar should be strictly close for all four wheelers.

Tej Shankar Paliwal suggested that a long wall should be erected at Chandpol to stop people throwing waste in lakes. As the present iron railings are too short in length and therefore many people living near the area throw garbage in the lake.

Leeladhar Kumawat said that the dustbins near lakes are not placed properly so they must be placed at proper places. In his reaction Haji Sardar Mohammad suggested that all business owners of Bambiya Bazar should take the responsibility of keeping the lake side clean by appointing either one of their men or hiring someone from outside.

When UdaipurTimes.com asked Nandkishore Sharma that since so many years he has been taking initiative of lake preservation and conservation, what is the development till now?

Mr. Sharma said, “We are very optimistic about our work and to be true there are affective changes we have noticed since last many years, more and more people are getting aware these days, even administration too has done many good jobs to prevent the lakes getting dirty.”

“Our main focus is to create more and more awareness among common public and in order to continue our mission we will arrange such meet-ups every week now and will put our suggestions in front of District Collector,” said Nandkishore Sharma.

On making it a no-traffic zone, one of the volunteers said, “See Mall Road in Shimla, it is about 1.5 km road but it is strictly no-vehicle zone, not even a VVIP’s car can run on that road. We also need such initiatives in Udaipur.”
