Pollution in Ganga | This time milk instead of Ganga water will be offered to Kashi Vishwanath on Nirjala Ekadashi.

In recent times, the pollution level has increased due to the green color of the Ganga water and the dumping of sewage from the Shahi Nala at Dashashwamedh Ghat. That is why this time Gangajal will not be offered to Gangadhar Shri Kashi Vishwanath on Nirjala Ekadashi. This happened five years ago also, but then Gangajal was brought from Tehri.

On Nirjala Ekadashi, Suprabhatam Puja Committee will not offer Gangajal to Gangadhar Shri Kashi Vishwanath.

The Puja committee has taken this decision after the Ganga water is green in color and the pollution level has increased due to the dumping of sewage from the Shahi drain at Dashashwamedh Ghat.

On Nirjala Ekadashi, Kalash Yatra is organized on behalf of Suprabbhatam Puja Committee.

Jagdamba Tulsyan, the convener of Kalash Yatra, told that on June 21, on Nirjala Ekadashi, Baba Vishwanath will be consecrated with milk instead of Gangajal. Due to the green water of the Ganges, the Ganges water is not fit for consumption.

Told that Kalash Yatra will be taken out from Rajendra Prasad Ghat to Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple. Even five years ago, when the pollution in the Ganges increased, Baba was anointed with the Ganges water sourced from Tehri.

Told that the former Mahant of Kashi Vishwanath temple, Dr. VC Tiwari will preside over the Kalash Yatra.
