11 km long river

There is a canal in the Amla assembly. It is said that this canal originates from Lilaur lake during Mahabharata. Later, it reaches Alampur Court via Sona, Palatha, Kesarpur, Kalyanpur. Here it takes the form of the jaundice river. But this historic river has now become a rainwater stream. There is no water throughout the year. That is why former minister Dharmapala resolved to make this river Sadaniira two years ago. Encroachment of the river bank was removed. Then its excavation started. People took a pledge to dig an 11 km long river and it was decided to do 7 km digging with Shramdan. Now after the resolve of the villagers, the district administration has decided to get the remaining four kilometers excavated. It will be dug from the MNREGA laborers. So that they too can get employment.

Tent set up in the village itself

The revival of the historic jaundice river began two years ago. When other social organizations including Patrika sought to revive the river. At the same time, the state government also took a pledge to revive the extinct rivers of the state. Then this expedition started from Pilibhit, the originating region of the Gomti River. It is still the priority of the government. In this sequence, MLA Dharmapala himself picked up the shovel and got up to dig the river. The people of the village with him lifted the shovel in their hands. The river started digging with the villagers. Dozens of villagers converged in Guru Dronacharya’s village Gurgaon. All of them excavated following social distancing. On sighting, excavation up to one km was done. Going beyond Alampur Court, the Jaundice River joins the Aril River. The MLA says that it has been resolved to bring this river alive to the public. For the next 15 days, he will dig the river together with the villagers. For this, a tent has been installed in the village itself. Everyone will stay there.
