Union Minister Uma Bharti Sunday asserted that the Centre was committed to cleaning up Ganga within three years even as she voiced dismay over the extent of pollution after an inspection here saying people were getting only “effluents” and not “Ganga jal” from the river. “We are committed to cleaning up the Ganga in the next three years. Since a major part of the holy river’s trajectory runs through UP, the cooperation of the state government will be required. We are looking forward to a meeting with the UP government scheduled for December 20,” Bharti told reporters here. She was in the city to take stock of the quality of water at the holy Sangam.
