Centre accedes to Bengal`s request, Sagar Islands included in Clean Ganga Project

West Bengal government had reputedly requested the Centre to include the state in its Clean Ganga Project. The State Irrigation and Waterways Minister Mr Rajib Banerjee had met the Central Minster in this regard. Finally, the Centre has acceded to the State's request to include the Sagar Islands and Ganga river stretch, flowing through the state, in Clean Ganga project and approved it on Monday.

The state irrigation and waterways department minister who attended the meeting representing the Bengal government, said that previously, the river stretch up to Baranasi came under the purview of Clean Ganga project.
“We urged the Centre to include the stretch of river flowing through our state in the project. The proposal has been approved in today's meeting. Now, the entire Ganga river stretch flowing through West Bengal, including the Gangasagar, has been brought under the purview of Clean Ganga scheme. With this, work on Gangasagar rejuvenation will start soon,” Mr Banerjee said.
