Devotees coming here are expressing their disappointment on such condition of Yamuna river. Kalpana, who came here to offer prayers, said that there is a importance of taking a dip in the river in Chhath Puja. That’s why I have come here, but the water is very dirty. This is causing us a lot of trouble. It can also cause diseases, but we are helpless. Cleanliness of water and ghats are much better in Bihar. The Delhi government should ensure that the ghats are cleaned.

Another devotee Sushma said that the water is very dirty, but what can we do. We have to take a bath. I am from Banka in Bihar. The water in Sultanganj is really good. But we had to come here because our family lives here. Local resident Shakeel told that this foam has been there for about a month. I am a diver and have been living here for the last 25 years. People take bath with soap and shampoo and wash their clothes. The water from the drains of the houses is coming here. This leads to the formation of foam. From one month a foam is increasing continuously.
