The report exposes the stunning hole between what the federal government preaches and it practices. Cleansing the Ganga was a part of the BJP manifesto.
Ramdev is not the one one falling foul of the authorities. Upmarket resorts like Sarovar Portico, consuming joints like Chotiwala, or the plethora of plush resorts within the Corbett Nationwide park have did not reply to authorities and the courts.
“Out of 180 defaulting industries to whom present trigger notices have been issued 42 defaulting items neither submitted their compliance to the present trigger discover, nor approached the UEPPCB for inspection.” The report goes on to level out that “These items have been suo moto inspected by regional officers after the expiry of the compliance interval.

Now, as per the CAG report, the river within the Prime Minister’s constituency of Varanasi occurs to be alongside some of the polluted stretches. In six cities of Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and West Bengal oxygen ranges within the water have plummetted from the extent it have been in 2012-2013.
