Plan to introduce boating at Brahma Sarovar draws flak

Kurukshetra, November 18

The proposal to start boating at Brahma Sarovar by the Kurukshetra Development Board (KDB) has not gone down well, with the Shri Brahmin Evam Tirthodhar Sabha threatening to protest if boating is introduced at the religious site.

According to information, to increase tourist attraction, the KDB has planned to introduce boats in Brahma Sarovar. The sabha members have raised objection to the same saying such moves are not good for the sanctity of the religious site.

However, the proposal is not new. There have been proposals to start boating and set up permanent craft shops at the sarovar in the past too, but due to opposition, the proposals were never executed.
