Clean Ganga, when?

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

Court has chided the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment over the de­lay in clean­ing the Ganga. In a stern or­der, the court asked the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment whether it wanted to do some­thing in its cur­rent term or would post­pone pol­lu­tion con­trol mea­sures to the next term. "Now, the point is, it is go­ing on for the last 30 years. You (Cen­tre) tell us as to what is the ver­i­fi­able progress in this re­gard," a Bench headed by Jus­tice T S Thakur asked the Cen­tral gov­ern­ment when its coun­sel in­formed the court that "things are hap­pen­ing". The gov­ern­ment has been asked to sub­mit state-wise projects for clean­ing the Ganga with "ver­i­fi­able progress" re­ports.
