Yamuna river will be cleaned in 3 years: Jain
The Delhi Government will aim to clean the Yamuna river in three years from now, according to Health Minister of Delhi Satyendar Jain.
“Arvind Kejriwal has given clear instructions to complete the clean Yamuna project as soon as possible and we are working day and night for this. He has asked us to complete this clean Yamuna project within 5 years, out of which 1 year has already been exhausted. But now we will clean it up before 5 years i.e. 3 years from now. Many people who have been running the government for a long time think that it is impossible but we will make it happen. After a year we will show you the status of the clean Yamuna project. We will clean the Yamuna river and set an example to the world,” he said.
Jain’s statement came after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday called upon the Delhi government to take some initiative to clean the Yamuna river on the lines of the Centre’s Namami Gange campaign to clean the Ganga.
“How we cleaned the river Ganga was watched by the entire world during the glorious Prayagraj Kumbh. The cleanliness of the river Ganga and the efficiency with which it was achieved came in for huge praise from international organisations like UNESCO,” said Adityanath.
“Similarly, anyone visiting Kanpur can see the cleanliness of the Ganga river there,” he added.
