· Maan Mandir representatives have met her and the concerned officials. we have expressed our issues and remedial measures. We have been assured due action. However, the new ministry is evaluating several option before it sets into action and this is taking time. She has recently announced that in the third phase of restoration they shall ensure adequate flow and also build parallel channels. These have been the main demands of Save Yamuna campaign all along.
· Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has gone slow and there is hardly any movement.
· The National Green Tribunal is moving at good speed and involved two IIT’s, India’s premier Engineering Institutes to formulate a practical solution to clean River Yamuna.
