Cities situated on the banks of Ganga river in Uttar Pradesh will now
witness increased social and economic activities. Working on the central
government’s ‘Ghat Pe Haat’ scheme, the Yogi Adityanath government has
decided to develop the banks of the river for tourism.
Principal secretary of Uttar Pradesh Tourism, Mukesh Meshram, said:
“Since this state is home to the biggest part of Ganga and a number of
religiously important cities fall on this stretch, we look forward to making
the most of this opportunity. A team of competent officers and experts is
already working on the proposal demanded by the Namami Gange
Officials at Namami Gange informed that the idea is to build or beautify
about 164 ghats across all the cities, besides encouraging farmers to take
up natural farming along the river. The plan also includes formation of
District Ganga Committees to address all issues related to the river.
Weekly markets may be allowed on these ghats which will be maintained
and cleaned regularly by the committees in place. This will be done with
the idea of promoting economic activity along the river….
