Source: The Hindu, New Delhi, Date: June , 2010

Asserting that the UPA government was committed to cleaning up the Ganga, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on June 1, 2010 said no untreated waste and industrial effluents would flow into the river by 2020. “Under ‘Mission Clean Ganga', it would be ensured that by 2020 no untreated municipal sewage and industrial effluents flow into the Ganga,” Dr. Singh said, in the Report to the People on completion of one year of the UPA's second term in office. He said the investment required for the Mission would be shared “suitably” between the Centre and the State governments.
