Police evicts GD Agrawal from venue of hunger strike on 19th day of fast

New Delhi, July 10 (UNI) Police on Tuesday evicted noted environmentalist Swami Gyan Swaroop Sanand (Prof G D Agrawal) from the venue of his indefinite hunger strike in Kankhal-Haridwar on the 19th day of his fast for the cause of clean and uninterrupted flow in Ganga, along its pristine course.
A team of police forcibly removed Swamiji from the site of his 'Fast-unto-Death,' as the Ganga warrior is still firm on resolve of continuing hunger strike, an agitating Prof Agrawal's associate told UNI over phone.
Meanwhile, environmentalists and activists from different places will gather at the Rajghat here on Wednesday, to perform prayers at the Gandhi memorial for the success of Swamiji's fast.
After remaining silent over the stir by the IIT Professor-turned-Sanyaasi for nine days, Ganga Rejuvenation Minister Nitin Gadkari and his predecessor, now Water Sources Minister Uma Bharti sent separate letters on July 1 to Swamiji, requesting him to break his hunger strike, but he did not relent and his fast continued for the 19th day on Tuesday.
Prior to launching his fast on June 22 on Ganga Dashmi, Sanand sent two letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, strongly criticising the Centre's apathy for keeping commitment made for a clean and pollution-free Ganga.
He also alleged that Mr Modi has a hangover of power and has no time to give attention to his demands or the cause of Ganga.
