The central government of India is building a big bridge around Keshi Ghat. It is against the will of all the local residents in Vrindavan. The new bridge threatens Vrindavan’s heritage ghat. The governor of the state of Uttar Pradesh is doing this without consulting anyone and not revealing the plans to anyone. This project is an ecological disaster, unethical and anti-aesthetic.
The bridge brings a freeway in front of the sanctuary. Hundreds of activists are against this and we will have a civic uprising with the presence of respectful leaders, citizens and schools students. Several Vaisnava Missions and representants of the World Vaisnava Association will march to the Yamuna and make a public protest. This ceremony is called bridge breaking ceremony. It is about breaking symbolically a part of the bridge. Also the press was invited so the protest can be seen in the national press . More than 500 kids of the Sandipani Muni School of Vrindavan are joining the pacific march with dancing art. We only see economic interests of some politicians behind this bridge. Please join the protest with your signature.
At the outset, it is necessary to mention that our campaign is in accordance with our fundamental duty as citizens by virtue of Article 51 A (g) of the Constitution of India, which enjoins " …every citizen of India to protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wild life and to have compassion for living creatures".
Please, foreign and Indian devotees, join the signature campaign to stop the construction of an unnecessary bridge.
