New Delhi, New May 14: Delhi will have its first riverfront on the Yamu but it will not be on the lines of the Sabarmati in Gujarat, along which Prime Minister rendra Modi took Chinese President Xi Jinping for a stroll in September 2014. Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra termed the Sabarmati riverfront “ecologically damaging” and promised to develop the Yamu riverfront “ecologically”. Mishra said the Gujarat government had stopped the flow of the river and created a pond for the Sabarmati riverfront. “They did not clean the Sabarmati as it is still dirty. They filled the pond with water from the rmada river. No environmental expert appreciates the Sabarmati riverfront model as they used lots of concrete in the construction, which is ecologically damaging,” Mishra told IANS. (IANS)
