Pune: The Sarva Jal Abhiyan (Water for All) campaign of the Delivering Change Foundation and Sakal Media Group, which aims to make Maharashtra water sufficient in five years, kicked off with the Jal Dindi at the Ranjangaon Mahaganpati pilgrim centre  on Thursday.

The Jal Dindi which has commenced from the eight holy Ganesha temples across the state will go to different corners of the State, garnering people’s support in making the State drought-free.

“Number of people from various stratas of the society are joining the movement of making the State 'water self reliant'. Youth from Young Inspirators Network and Tanishka Group members are playing crucial role to make this initiative sucessful,” said Shriram Pawar, Chief Editor of Sakal Media Group.

“We began with water lab and water conference in Mumbai. It was attended by various stakeholders and water experts. After deliberation, the domain experts and prime stakeholders identified 32 initiatives that need to be implemented. All of these are aimed at achieving the big challenge viz. Water for All,” he added

The Jal Dindi which was launched today will carry holy water as a symbolic blessing of the Lord to the different parts of Maharashtra. The Dindi will take the message of the new water policy across the State.

Ahok Pawar, MLA; Bhausaheb Patil, Director (Technology) of Sakaal Media Group; Bobby Nimbalkar, Head, Strategic Council, Sakal Media Group; Makrand Dev, Trustee of the Ranjangaon pilgrim centre and Swati Pachunkar, Sarpanch of Ranjangaon were present during the launch of the campaign.
