Therefter, if someone pollutes Ganga River, the law will see no difference between harming a human being and harming the river.

Several projects to clean up the river are expected to be given a boost after Bharatiya Janata Party’s win in the state Assembly elections this year. The Central government had given the green signal to ‘Namami Gange’ in May 2015.
