Vrindavan, 2020-09-10 (VT): The Mathura-Vrindavan Municipal Corporation is working on a recreational project on Vrindavan Parikrama Marg under which the one acre site adjoining the Kumbh Mela Kshetra will be developed as a picnic spot.
This piece of land stretching from Jagannath Ghat to Tatiya Sthan on the other side belongs to the government. However, waste water from drains coming through Keshi Ghat, Paani Ghat, and Rangji Mandir has turned it into a swamp.
According to Municipal Commissioner Ravindra Kumar Mandar, Rangji Mandir and Paani Ghat drains have fully been tapped, and the work on Paani Ghat is underway. The site is being drained with the help of pumps and if there’s no heavy rainfall, the job will be complete within the next 10-15 days, after which tree plantation will begin. The plan also includes installing of swings and stone benches in the park.
The project is being managed by add. municipal commissioner, Satendra Kumar Tiwari. Once ready, the spot will serve an attraction to both locals and tourists/devotees coming from outside the town.
