The ghat located on the banks of Vishwamitri river had been buried under earth brought there by siltation during the monsoon over the years. The work on the ghat was started by a group of volunteers under the banner of the Navnath Kavad Yatra Samiti. Jain said that VMC has promised to supply excavators for the work for around one week so that the entire ghat which is about 350m long and 70m wide is cleared.
