New Delhi: A man in Nashik stood beside Godavari river for a whole day to stop people from throwing garbage into the river.

As plastic pollution in water bodies have been constantly rising every single day by damaging the ecosystem, many people have become cautious and came forward to safeguard them as much as possible.

On Saturday, the story of Chandra Kishore Patil was shared by Indian Foreign Service (IFS) officer Swetha Boddu.

Soon the tweet got viral and netizens all over the internet have been praising Patil for his simple and impactful initiative.

The picture shared by Boddu shows that a large number of garbage bags are kept on the ground and Patil is standing on the bridge with a whistle in hand.

Boddu tweeted, “I saw this man stand on this road entire day with a whistle in hand to stop people from throwing Dussehra ‘holy waste’ in #Plastic bags into Godavari @Nashik Dear Mr Patil, Respect!”

Patil spoke to Hindustan Times and said that he resides in a nearby society of the river. He has been stopping people from polluting the river during the festival seasons from the past five years.

He said that he took the decision to take a stand after he noticed that the water becomes filthier every passing year as people used to dispose of their waste in the river after the festivities.

“I’ve been doing this every year for five years now. And will continue doing this till my health permits. The accumulated waste then gets collected by the municipality and taken away to a separate dump yard,” Patil said.

He added, “I stand beside the river from morning till 11 pm at night with a whistle and alert people not to throw garbage in the river. Many behave rudely with me, but I still pursue them not to do such things.”

When he was asked that how he efficiently deals with the resistance from people, Patil said that he fills bottles with the river water and asks people to take a dip from it. He makes them understand the severe condition due to the pollution in the river because of garbage dumping.

People on social media have been applauding Pati’s initiative. Also, a comment from IFS officer Boddu post read, “Thanks for sharing positive information. Thanks to Mr. Patil too working selflessly for Noble cause and awareness.”
