Amarkantak: PM Modi to mark conclusion of 'Narmade Seva Yatra' campaign today

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take part in an event marking the conclusion of 'Narmade Seva Yatra', a campaign to save river Narmada here today.

The Prime Minister took to his twitter handle to express his excitement to join the programme.

"I am delighted to join the programme to mark the conclusion of the Narmada Seva Yatra in Amarkantak, Madhya Pradesh, tomorrow afternoon," he twitted.

He said Narmada Seva Yatra is an excellent mass movement to protect the Narmada and conveys a larger message of saving the environment.

'Tomorrow in Madhya Pradesh, I will be launching the #NarmadaSevaMission, which will surely have a major impact on MP's ecology,' he tweeted

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that the Narmada campaign is a contribution towards the United Nations' Paris agreement to save the environment.

"This is not only a historic day for Madhya Pradesh but for the entire world. This campaign has become a wonderful mass movement. A score of people took part in our initiative, with only resolution to save the Narmada. It is our honour that the prime minister is coming here today on this occasion," Chouhan told ANI.

The Narmada yatra which was started in December last year from here will conclude after covering a distance of more than three thousand kilometres and covering over 1,100 villages and towns. The Narmada river conservation campaign was launched in December last year.
