New Delhi, Jun 17 : Private Sharda University has launched ‘#WaterForLife’ campaign to raise awareness about water scarcity.
Postgraduate student Rohan Singh embarked on a bicycle journey covering around 5,500 km from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.
Singh, whose journey was flagged off from Indoor Stadium, Srinagar, by SSP Haseeb Moughal on Saturday, will cover 12 States and culminate at Kanyakumari in two-three months.
"The focus of the campaign is to identify the issues leading to scarcity of clean and safe drinking water and other water related issues affecting livestock, farming, businesses, livelihood and depleting groundwater level among others. The findings of the project will be made into a documentary which will be India’s first Video based research report on Water related issues, findings and solutions," said University Executive Director Prashant Gupta in a statement on Monday.
The student will be cycling through Kashmir, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala. (UNI)
