Narpani Iyakkam – An initiative to clean 25 lakes in Chennai

Volunteers of actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan’s ‘Narpani Iyakkam’ (Welfare Club), who are cleaning Madhambakkam lake in Chennai , have announced that they will adopt and clean 25 lakes in Tamil Nadu.

“Cleaning India’s fresh water bodies is critical and needs to be done on a war footing. All our water bodies are being converted into sewer drains and dumpyards. This has to change and the society needs to understand the significance of conserving these water bodies,” read a statement.

“Thus, All India Kamal Haasan Narpani Iyakkam’s volunteers will join hands with the Environmentalists Foundation of India’s team of research volunteers to adopt and clean 25 lakes across Tamil Nadu. This entire effort will be scientific and sustainable,” added the statement.
