Varanasi, Apr 10: Swami Gyan Swarup Sanand has once again gone on fast-unto-death to press for his demand for conservation of Ganga river. This time, however, he has chosen an undisclosed location in a forest in the state to prevent any disturbances by police or others.

On Apr 5, Sanand had again threatened to sit on fast-unto-death if the outcome of the scheduled meet of National Ganga River Basin Authority on Apr 17 is not satisfactory. He had also alleged the he had not received an invitation for the Apr 17 meeting, and had threatened an early fast if he was not invited to the meet.

Sanand had called off his 15-day long fast on Mar 23 at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in the presence of Union minister Sriprakash Jaiswal after he received a written agreement from the Central government. The Centre, in the agreement, had promised that it will look into measures for Ganga conservation, and will ensure its unimpeded flow and cleanliness.
