A cleaner Ganga: NDA’s unfulfilled promise
Despite strong rhetoric, the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance government has struggled to clean the Ganga and other rivers

Every day, across the country, tonnes of waste is dumped into rivers, polluting their waters, choking their flow and endangering millions who rely on them. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has tried to address this, with an emphasis on the Ganga, but failed to make much progress.
