Kumbh: Centre okays Rs85 cr to clean Ganga

New Delhi, November 17

The Centre has approved projects worth Rs 85 crore to clean the Ganga river to help the Uttarakhand Government to successfully hold “Kumbh” in Haridwar that starts from January 14.

Besides revitalising the Ganges, the slew of projects will give a facelift to its embankments in Haridwar. These are in addition to projects undertaken by it in the recent past. The Centre’s thrust is on making Haridwar a hot destination for religious tourism. The “Kumbh” will be used to showcase to the world the aesthetic aspect of Haridwar backed by infrastructure.

The Union Jal Shakti Ministry’s National Mission for Clean Ganga has sanctioned the projects. — TNS
