Students of the Government City College resolved to take one lakh signatures to initiate Musi Bachao Andolan at a conference organised in the college premises on Friday.

The conference, inaugurated by the college principal Dr C Manjulatha and eminent environmentalist Prof. K Purushotham Reddy, was attended by large number of students, NGOs, environmentalists, delegates and experts from the city. Prof. K Purushotham Reddy said, “The Musi was originally known as River Muchikunda, a tributary of River Krishna.

Now the river is highly polluted and has turned into cesspool due to the dumping of the industrial effluents and sewage. This causes a lot of health hazards. There is an urgent need to address these issues as every thinking citizen is responsible for ameliorating this situation.” Dr Shilpa Krishna, Prof. Uma Maheshwar, Dr Jasween Jairath, Dr Lubna, Dr Jeevanada Reddy, Dr Narasimha reddy and others were present at the conference.
