Ensure maximum participation of people in pond cleaning campaign : Tript Bajwa, 'Implement Seechewal model in 5 villages of every block' Pond cleaning project proceeding on war footing in half of entire States' villages: Anurag Verma Cleaning campaign to be completed within a fortnight : Kahan Singh Pannu

The Rural Development and Panchayat Minister, Punjab, Mr. Tript Rajinder Singh Bajwa today took stock of the progress made till date in campaign pertaining to the cleaning of ponds across the entire State. Instructing the departmental officers to ensure maximum participation of the people in the campaign, the minister said that the desired results can only be achieved in the campaign if masses living in rural belts take to this work as their own. 

Addressing the departmental officers via video conferencing, Mr. Bajwa cleaning the ponds in each village through desilting mode every year is necessary because this activity results in rain water being absorbed in the earth thus leading to the relative ease in keeping it's level higher.

He also said that Punjab today faces the biggest challenge in the form of stemming the trend of depleting water level beneath the earth. The minister directed the officers to also exhort the people living in the rural areas to go for restricted use of water.
