Students join Musi River Walk

Musi River Walk


Manikonda Veda Kumar,  chairman of Forum for A Better Hyderabad on September 25, Sunday, called upon people of Hyderabad and Telangana to protect Musi River from all sorts of dangers – pollution, encroachments and extinction. He led a Musi River Front Walk, on the occasion of World Rivers Day this day. This is 15th year, Veda Kumar led this annual Musi river walk.

Interestingly, a large number of students, youth and environmental enthusiasts have joined the walk for about 2 km distance in the southern bed of Musi river, from Salar Jung Museum to Shivaji Statue point. Youth chanted slogans like “Save Musi, Save Hyderabad”. Deccan Heritage Academy, JBR architecture college and Canadian outfit, World Rivers Day, too took part in the event.

Addressing the gathering, Veda Kumar said: “Rivers are our lifeline and it is our responsibility to protect them from kinds of threats. We the people of Hyderabad have a wonderful flowing water body like Musi river which is key to survival of many other water bodies. It is the duty of youngsters to come forward and save it for the sake of future generations”. Veda Kumar urged the government to take necessary actions to save Musi.

Excel India Chief Editor Rama Krishna Sangem appreciated the participation of students and youth in the walk. He asked the students to make it a point to visit rivers and include nature as part of their extra curricular activity.  When he asked the students to raise hands if they were interested knowing more about Musi river, many of them responded  positively. A couple of students promised to speak at next year’s walk.

Forum for a Better Hyderabad member G Venugopal Rao, P Narahari, Afzal Gunj police sub-inspector V Rambabu, and representatives of Musi River Front Development Corporation, Jaipur Foundation, Aman Vedika and APSA, SCSE, Save Golkonda SRD Rainbow home and teachers and students from JBR college of architecture were among those who spoke and participated in the walk.
