On Friday, CM Bhagwant Mann had met Sant Balbir Singh Seechewal in village Seechewal of Shahkot. During this, he had praised the works of Sant Seechewal fiercely. Since then, the discussions about getting the seal of Sant Seechewal’s name started.
Sant Seechewal is considered the keeper of the environment
By starting the Kar Seva in Punjab in the year 2000, Sant Seechewal played a special role in rejuvenating Kali Bei, the historical river associated with Guru Nanak Dev Ji. Due to his efforts, 160 km long black bay was cleared of industrial and human pollution. Today Kali Bei is not only seen as a role model in the country, but today that place has developed into a picnic spot. Seechewal, a well known saint from Road Wala Baba, Welfare Baba, Bein Wale Baba and Eco Baba, took out Congress Booti from Bein with his own hands. In the initial phase, the efforts of Sant Seechewal, who walked alone, have become a public wave.
