New Delhi: Making the public connect and citizens accountable. This has been the endeavour to ensure clean Ganga under the Namami Gange mission. This was stated by Rajiv Ranjan Mishra, Director General, National Mission for Clean Ganga, Department of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation, Government of India. He was speaking in the valedictory session of virtual APAC ‘Global Water Management Conclave’ held recently.

He said, ‘Ganga rejuvenation is directly linked with rainwater harvesting. Pollution control is another area which needs to be actively worked upon to make Ganga rejuvenation successful. The challenge areas in this project are cost and sustainability. We tried to consolidate city-wise sanitation in liquid waste management and further extending it by including frequent sludge management. Integrated water management in the next area where we are moving forward to. We have to segregate between waste water, storm water and rain water in order to be more effective in our approach.’

He further added that ‘another important aspect is to build public connect and make the citizens accountable for a clean Ganga. Owing to the magnitude and the large area covered by the river Ganga, the National Mission for Clean Ganga is customised according to areas. For example, in the rural areas, we connect with the farmers. Along with that, we plan building a catchment plantation across the river basins which would help in catching and storing the rainwater. We have collaborated with the Forest Department for this.

The first edition of the virtual conclave was also supported by ‘Namami Gange.’
