Arnav Tibrewala started this petition to The Greater Hyderabad Muncipal cooperation

 

Rivers are integral towards our growth and development; we have seen entire colonies built and thriving on the banks of rivers, that depend on its water for drinking and survival. The water from rivers is a key aspect in agriculture and the land around a river is extremely fertile. As a river snakes across the landscape, it allows for greenery and animal life to spring to fruition around it. Without rivers, most of humanity would not have access to clean water and would be left a dry and desolates wasteland.

 

Yet….

Knowing all this, we are destroying our rivers. The Musi river in Hyderabad, which was once a thick gush of water, now barely runs strong enough to use a boat in. The cause of this? Extensive Human Interaction. Extensive building of dams, heavy channelling of the water into agricultural lands which causes the water levels to stay low and sedimented with the uncontrolled dumping of sewage and trash. Due to these three factors, the Musi river has been drying up over the ears. This river in Hyderabad let the Mughals thrive in this city and later the farmers, and today, food growing on the banks of this river have been known to contain harmful heavy metals. As a citizen of Hyderabad, it pains me greatly to observe the gradual death of this river, while doing nothing about it. Let us pay back to nature, let us save the river that has served us so well. 

If you sign this petition, then you will be contributing in the restoring the Musi river back to its original state. By signing this, we will be able to send a message to the government about what we want.

 

By signing this we might be able to enforce laws and campaigns in the interest of the restoration and protection of this river. Let us save the Musi River.
