Dhar (Madhya Pradesh): In a strong show of community engagement and environmental stewardship, MLA Neena Verma and collector Priyank Mishra, alongside residents, took up hoes and shovels to clean Bagdoon Pond in Pithampur on Sunday.

This initiative is part of the ongoing 'Jal Ganga Samvardhan Abhiyan', a campaign aimed at revitalising water bodies across villages and cities.

The campaign, which began on World Environment Day, June 5, focuses on restoring groundwater and rainwater reserves by renovating old water sources. The efforts in Dhar city and its surrounding rural areas are part of a broader plan to ensure water conservation through community participation.

Addressing the volunteers, MLA Neena Verma emphasised the critical need to save rainwater and highlighted the collective effort required to combat declining groundwater levels. "This mission cannot be accomplished by the government and administration alone; it requires the active participation of society,î she said.

Collector Priyank Mishra elaborated on the district's comprehensive plan for water conservation, which includes daily efforts to save water structures. The plan encompasses the renovation and conservation of rivers, tributaries, dams, and ponds, aiming to involve the community at every step.

Mishra also inaugurated a new electric sanitation vehicle and encouraged participants in an essay and painting competition by planting trees.

The 'Jal Ganga Samvardhan Abhiyan' will continue until June 16, aiming to rejuvenate water bodies and enhance water conservation efforts through community involvement and systematic planning.
