The Allahabad High Court has made a strong comment on the National Clean Ganga Mission. The court has said that the mission work is not visible on the ground. The work of the mission is deceiving the eyes. This mission has become just a money distribution machine.
The Allahabad High Court has made a serious comment on the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG-National Mission for Clean Ganga) while hearing the PIL filed in the case of Ganga pollution.
The court said that there is no monitoring of whether the Ganga is being cleaned with the money given by the mission. Nor is any work being done at the ground level.
The court was told on behalf of Prayagraj Municipal Corporation that 44 lakh rupees are being spent every month in cleaning the drains. The court expressed surprise on this. Said that crores are being spent in a year, then the situation is the same.
The UP Pollution Control Board said that it has received 332 complaints so far. Punishment has been done in 48. The court found in the affidavit of the UP Pollution Control Board that the proceedings started after its previous order.
Ganga is dirty even after spending crores in Prayagraj. A division bench headed by Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal learned the details of the budget allocated by the mission during the hearing on Monday. Asked whether the budget of crores of rupees spent for cleaning the Ganga worked or not, the court got an answer.
The court asked whether there are environmental engineers for such a big project. To this it was replied that all the officers working in the name are environmental engineers.
On this, the court asked how do you monitor the projects, then there was no answer on this.
