Up to 80% of Ganga will be cleaned by end of March, says Nitin Gadkari

Union water resources minister Nitin Gadkari Thursday said 70 to 80 percent of the Ganga will be cleaned by the end of March. Nearly Rs 26,000 crore are being spent on cleaning up the holy river that s highly polluted now, under the National Mission for Clean Ganga in association with the states, the minister said. By the end of March, 70-80 percent of the Ganga will be cleaned, and my feeling is that by March 2020, the river will be 100 percent clean, Gadkari said at the launch of a book, India Inspires: Redefining the Politics of Deliverance here this evening. On the fall in the second quarter GDP growth rates, the minister, who also holds the key portfolios of roads highways and ports shipping, said as far as the economy is concerned, we are still the fastest growing one among the large economies in the world. It can be noted that for the second quarter of the current fiscal year, the economy grew at 7.1 percent--a three-quarter low--over 6.3 percent .
