5-day Ganga Yatra Start in Uttar Pradesh


The 5 day Ganga Yatra started in Uttar Pradesh under the ''Namami Ganga'' campaign.

While one Yatra began from Bijnor, the other Yatra was flagged off from Ballia by UP Governor Anandiben Patel and Bihar deputy CM Sushil Modi. Both the Yatras will culminate in Kanpur on Jan 31.

The aim of the Yatra is to promote bio-diversity and to make the villages situated on the banks of the holy river more developed and prosperous.
