SC slams Centre on Ganga Cleaning Project

New Delhi, Oct. 29: The Supreme Court on Wednesday pulled up the Centre and state pollution control boards for not taking action against polluting industries functioning on the banks of the River Ganga.

The court called the project as complete failure and slammed the bodies for their casual approach to clean up the Holy river.

The court said that the action must be taken against the factories releasing effluents in the Ganga. It asked the National Green Tribunal to monitor all polluting establishments located on the banks of the river, and act against them for any violation of the law.

It can be noted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given top priority to the cleaning up of Ganga, which was a part of the election manifesto made during his extensive campaign in the country.
