Between the many debates about the cleansing of the Patna Pure Ganga, the Union Minister, Shri Nitin has claimed that 70 to 80 per cent of Ganga will be cleared till March of this year. In the Modi government, Union Road Transport, Highway, Shipping, Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Conservation Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the Prime Minister of Nation to cleanse the Ganga is the dream of Mr. Narendra Modi. Before becoming Prime Minister of Varanasi, the Prime Minister had said that I have called the mother Ganga.
They have resolved to purify the Ganga. I believe that till March 2019, the Ganges will be purified from 70 to 80 percent. Gadkari said, it has been decided to leave water from barrage for the uninterrupted Ganga. It has been decided that after the march from Gangotri to Gangasagar, the water level of Ganga will be kept at least two meters. Ganga has been fined Rs. 10 thousand crore for cleaning and eight in Varanasi and 268 projects in the country. Some time ago, in 80 places, the water was tested for Ganga, it contained 55 water purifiers.
Shri Nitin Gadkari claimed that when the five years of PM’s tenure will be completed, he will make beautiful roads of Uttar Pradesh with two lakh crore rupees. Chief Minister Yogi assured Adityanath that it is intended to start a water carrier from Ethanal which is ready in the state’s sugar mills. Union Minister Shri Nitin Gadkari said that water transport in Ganga was started in 1986. Until Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister, no work was done.
With the help of World Bank, with the help of 5400 crores, multi-modal hub is being developed in Varanasi, Ghazipur, Haldia. When I used to say that the cruise will run in the Ganges. People used to laugh when the cargo ships were run. PM Modi has brought 16 containers for the first time after Independence. Transport of 8 million tonnes of cargo will be done soon after the water route. Within two years, 270 lakh tonnes of goods will come from water transport. 10 rupees from the road, six rupees from the rail, if the goods from the water route, one rupee will be charged.
Shri Gadkari said that Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maury is going to start the waterway till the Prayagraj soon. Four ports are making in Allahabad Caterpillar (Roro service) will start here in Aquarius. Through this, Allahabad will be able to reach Varanasi in the hour of hours. Five and Seven Star Cruise will run in the Ganges. He assured the Fisheries MP Ram Charan Nishad that the fish in the Ganges will also have fish.
Nishad society will be able to fish. Varanasi’s economy will be strengthened by increasing tourism opportunities. The airport was named after Lal Bahadur Shastri but the road was not good for going to the city. Now the construction of the forelane between Babtpur and the city will also facilitate tourists as well as local people.
