NGT pulls up government on zero result of Ganga cleaning
Green Tribunal ( NGT) pulled up Uttar Pradesh and the Centre over pollution in the Ganga. NGT said despite tall claims, zero result was delivered. NGT had initially sought an action plan from Uttar Pradesh on steps taken to clean the Ganga from Haridwar to Kanpur, part of the Namami Ganga programme's first phase. On the state's inability to do so, NGT gave a final opportunity to the authorities to submit a report within two weeks. Everyone comes here and tells us that they have done this and that but the result is zero. What are your plans? How are you going to protect it between Haridwar and Kanpur? a bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Swatanter Kumar asked.
