    Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of cleaning up the Ganga has so far resulted in the expenditure of lakhs of rupees on meetings and discussions.
    In a reply to a request for information under the RTI Act by Gopal Prasad, the government has stated that Rs 43.85 lakh has been spent on a meeting of the National Mission for Clean Ganga at Vigyan Bhawan in the Capital.

    PM Modi has made it his mission to clean up the polluted River Ganga
    The reply has revealed shocking figures on the expenditure. The amount spent on meetings and accommodation of guests coming for the meeting was close to Rs 26.7 lakh, while the money spent on officials' travel was Rs 8.8 lakh.
    Similarly, the amount spent on advertising the event was Rs 5.1 lakh.
    Interestingly, the government spent Rs 75,000 on floral decorations while other arrangements accounted for Rs 2.3 lakh.


    Since measures taken till now had been inadequate and a national effort was required to mobilise resources for cleaning the holy river, the BJP-led government announced the setting up of an Integrated Ganga Conservation Mission called ‘Namami Gange’ and an initial sum of Rs 2,037 crore was allocated in the Union Budget for 2014-15.

    This is an extremely important project.

    It has to go through on no matter what basis. There are no other options left.

    The reason is river Ganga basin covers 1087300 sq-kms. It covers 26% land of total area of India, 32% of total area of Bangladesh and 100% of Nepal.

    That is nearly 5% land of entire Southeast Asia.
