@PIB_India
Prime Minister Narendra Modi today chaired the first meeting of the National Council for Ganga and reviewed the progress of the Namami Gange project aimed at cleaning river Ganga.

Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath, Chief Minister of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat, Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar Sushil Modi, several union ministers, including Environment Minister Prakash Jawdekar, Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat, Dr. Harshvardhan, RK Singh, Prahlad Patel, Mansukh Mandavia, Hardeep Singh Puri and many officers of the central and state governments attended the meeting in Kanpur.

The Prime Minister reviewed the progress of work done and gave suggestions for cleaning the Ganga. Prior to the meeting, the Prime Minister visited an exhibition on Namami Ganga Mission, showcasing the work done for the cleanliness of the Ganga.

Our correspondent reports that Mr Modi, accompanied by the Union ministers and the Chief Minister will go to newly built Atal Ghat near Ganga Barrage to assess changes under Namai Gange in the past few years.

Mr Modi will also take a selfie at the newly created selfie point at Seesmau nullah which was the largest drain falling in the river. The 128-year old drain was a major contributor to the river's pollution.


Under Namami Gange Programme, 13 out of 16 major drains in Kanpur have been completely tapped and the sewage and industrial effluents have been diverted to Common Effluent Treatment Plants.
