New Delhi, Feb 4 (IANS) Spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Thursday announced a three-month campaign to clean river Yamuna.
The campaign — ‘My Yamuna, My Dilli’ — to be launched here Sunday, is being organised in view of the Central Pollution Control Board’s (CPCB) latest report that the faecal content in the water of the Yamuna is so high that the river resembles a drain.
