Varanasi, Jan 14 (ANI): A French tourist is actively promoting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'Clean Ganga' campaign in Uttar Pradesh, vowing to spread the message of keeping the holy river free from impurities in rural parts of the country. Krish, who came to India to take part in the 'Kumbh Mela' or 'Pitcher Festival' last year, was concerned on seeing the condition of the river considered holy by the Hindus. Inspired by the Clean Ganga campaign, Krish took the responsibility of cleaning the river in the 3,000-year-old riverside city of Varanasi. Krish says he will soon embark on an expedition from the holy town of Rishikesh to Kolkata city by boat in a bid to spread the message of keeping the river free from impurities.
