Times of India 2nd september 2009

Varanasi: A youth, Sanjay Saidpuri, launched an indefinite stir on Wednesday by lying on thorns at the district headquarters in support of the on-going fast-unto-death stir of Baba Nagnath. The latter has been agitation for the past 411 days for the release of the Ganga from Tehri Dam. Saidpuri reached the district headquarters to launch his stir in support of his demands. He claimed that due to the indefinite fast-unto-death stir, the health condition of Baba Nagnath was deteriorating sharply. He alleged that on the directives of the district magistrate, Nagnath had been admitted to SPG hospital but he was not being treated properly. He held it unfortunate that despite sending several letters to the Union government, no attention was being paid to the demands of Nagnath. He said he would continue his stir until the water was not released from the Tehri Dam to maintain proper flow of the Ganga. He also forwarded a memorandum to the President and Prime Minister.
