Sirohi: Flagging water security as a major concern Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday called for the revival of the country’s “emotional connection” with nature, what he said the world’s calls “sustainable development”.

PM Modi was launching the Jal Jan Abhiyan, a joint nationwide campaign by Brahma Kumaris, an organisation which promotes spirituality, and the Union Jal Shakti Ministry.

The PM addressed the event through video conference at the Brahma Kumaris’ Abu Road headquarter in Sirohi district. He said conserving water should be a collective concern, and raised concerns over water pollution and the depletion of groundwater.

Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, actor Nana Patekar and erstwhile Mewar royal family member Lakshyaraj Singh attended event.

The awareness campaign will be held across the country for eight months, targeting 10 crore people. “Due to such a large population, water security is an important concern for India. It is a shared responsibility of all of us,” he said.

“There shall be a tomorrow only if there is water, and for this we have to make joint efforts from today,” Modi said. He said water conservation has been a part of India’s spirituality for thousands of years.

“That’s why we term water as god, call rivers mother.” “When a society makes such an emotional connect with nature, the world calls it sustainable development,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said.
