Rishikesh: Inaugurating the Sewerage Drain Re-Mediation Project, constructed with courtesy of Parmarth Niketan in Chandreshwar Ghat located in Rishikesh, Chief Minister Mr. Trivendra Singh Rawat said that the common people’s cooperation is very essential in making Ganga clean. He said that the government is committed to clean the rivers by 2020.
Chief Minister said that technology imported from Holand being used by Parmarth Niketan to clean the sewerage water, is capable of making the water clean at low cost. This technique will be used on experimental basis to clean the sewerage going into Ganga through the Chandrabhaga River. When this technique will prove to be effective, it would also be installed in other sewers connected with river Ganga and the rivers crossing, which used to trouble people because of the foul smell, would be made so much clean by year 2020 that selfies could be clicked at such places.
Chief Minister said that along with general masses, other organisations will also have to come forward for the cleaning of the 2500 KMs long world famous river Ganges on the sea shore of Gomukh, so that Ganga river could be kept clean. He said that Rishikesh has been established as the capital of world Yoga, which is a matter of pride for our state and country. It is the moral responsibility of all of us to keep this world famous beautiful city clean in which the cooperation of various institutions is expected. The work of officers associated with the Ganga cleanliness will be reviewed continuously. On this occasion, Swami Chidanand Ji Maharaj said that Ganga is the heritage of this country and it is the moral responsibility of all of us to keep it clean.
On the occasion, Vidhan sabha Speaker Premchand Aggarwal, Swami of Parmarth Niketan Chidanand Ji Maharaj, Chief Secretary Utpal Kumar Singh, Director General Namami Gange Rajiv Ranjan, Secretary, Arvind Hayanki besides other officers and public were present.
