CM Pushkar Singh Dhami will attend the meeting of National Ganga Council in Kolkata on December 30, will give suggestions

The ongoing Namami Gange project in Uttarakhand with the aim of cleanliness and purity of the national river Ganga has yielded meaningful results.
In view of better steps in this direction, the meeting of the National Ganga Council to be held in Kolkata on December 30 is considered important from the point of view of the state.

In order to prevent rivers and ground water from getting polluted, we will suggest:
Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami will also participate in this meeting. During this, he will give suggestions for the revival of the catchment areas of Ganga and its tributaries, as well as to prevent pollution of rivers and ground water. On the other hand, in view of the meeting of the council, the government is also engaged in finalizing all the subjects to be raised in it.
Uttarakhand, the origin of the Ganges, is also involved in the Namami Gange project. In its first phase, sewerage treatment plants (STPs) in 15 cities adjacent to the main stream of the Ganga from Gomukh to Haridwar, focused on taping of drains, so that the filth does not enter the Ganges. Later, the tributaries of the Ganga were included in this campaign.

20 out of 28 schemes of STP completed:
If we look at the works of Namami Gange, out of 28 schemes of STP, 20 have been completed, while work is going on in the rest. In most it is in the last stage. 131 drains falling into Ganga have been taped and connected to STPs. Out of 58 schemes of Snan and Moksha Ghat, 50 have been completed.
As a result of these efforts, the quality of Ganga water has improved. According to the standards of the Central Pollution Control Board, at present the water quality of the Ganges from Gomukh to Rishikesh is of A-class, while that of Rishikesh to Haridwar in the state border is of B-class. The government is excited by these results of Namami Gange. Along with this, now it has intensified efforts to include other rivers in the project.

In this series, the meeting of the National Ganga Council to be held in Kolkata is considered important for the state. In this, along with the review of Namami Gange’s works so far, the future strategy will be decided. Any new model can be included in the project. Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami will also participate in this meeting.
He will suggest special focus on watershed areas for cleanliness, purity and continuity of Ganga and its tributaries in Uttarakhand. On the other hand, Udayraj, Additional Secretary and Program Director of Namami Gange Project in the state, is busy preparing for the meeting of the National Ganga Council to be held on December 30.

Seven Activities in Arth Ganga:
In the meeting of the National Ganga Council held in Kanpur on 14 December 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave the ‘Earth Ganga’ model for sustainable economic development in Namami Gange.
Under this, activities related to zero budget natural farming, livelihood generation, cultural heritage and tourism, re-use of sludge and waste water, forestry intervention, public participation and institutional development are being conducted in the areas along the Ganga in Uttarakhand.
The ‘Namami Gange’ project of the Central Government is one of the 10 major initiatives in the world that have played an important role in restoring the natural world. Ganga is our cultural identity. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took an important initiative in the direction of Ganga cleanliness and its results are visible. The state government is effectively putting this project on the ground. The targets given by the center to the state in Namami Gange have been fulfilled ahead of time. For us it is not only a river but also a preservation of culture.
