River Ganga conservation campaign
Varanasi, Nov 16 (ANI): Uttar Pradesh Police have organized a campaign from Haridwar to Varanasi to create awareness among people to save the River Ganga.
The campaign was initiated by the personnel of the Uttar Pradesh police in which personnel of Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) and Border Security Force (BSF) were also included.
"There is lack of awareness among people and Ganga is becoming more and more polluted. As it is a heritage possession of our elders, so we are trying to spread awareness among people to keep the river clean," said Deep Chand Yadav, PAC official.
"At a few places the river is clean but at few places it's very dirty. Polythene and dead animals are flowing in the river. So, at every bank, with the help of the locals, we tried our best to clean the river," said Maan Singh, a policeman.
In recent years, non-stop inflow of untreated civic waste and industrial effluents has turned the Ganga into a polluted water body.
The Government has planned to end discharge of untreated waste into the Ganga by 2020.
Though the Union Government enacted Ganga Action Plan in 1985 to clean the river, much of the action seems to have confined to papers. (ANI)
