The activists of the Taj city reminded the Union and the state governments of the "pathetic condition" of the river.
River activist Anand Rai said, "The Yamuna river was not just the lifeline of the city but also a heritage entity along whose banks were sited architectural marvels like the Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort."
Environmentalist Devashish Bhattacharya said the successive governments have failed to save the river.
"Till date nothing concrete had been done to save the river," he said.
