Human chain formed to spread awareness about cleaning river Ganges

Hundreds of local residents, including schoolchildren and policemen, on Tuesday formed a human chain to spread awareness about the importance of cleaning river Ganges. Holding placards, people from all walks of life formed 5-km long chain to spread awareness about cleaning river Ganges. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched the 'Namami Ganga' project back in 2014 to bring together various efforts for cleaning and conserving the river. The Indian government also celebrated 'Ganga Swachhta Sankalp Divas' under the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) today.
