Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate six mega projects in Uttarakhand under the ‘Namami Gange Mission’ through a video conference, reported news agency PTI .
The Prime Minister’s Office said on Monday that the projects include construction of a 68 MLD sewage treatment plant, upgradation of the existing 27 MLD STP at Jagjeetpur in Haridwar and construction of an 18 MLD STP at Sarai in Haridwar.
He will also inaugurate ‘Ganga Avalokan’, the first museum on Ganga aimed at showcasing the culture, biodiversity and rejuvenation activities done in the river.
The museum is located at Chandi Ghat, Haridwar.
A book, ‘Rowing down the Ganges’, co-published by National Mission for Clean Ganga and Wildlife Institute of India will also be launched at the event, the PMO said.
The colourful book is an attempt to merge the biodiversity and culture of the river, as it conceptualises its story as what one would see when one rows down from Gaumukh, Ganga’s origin to Ganga Sagar, the last point before it enters the sea.
