Jagran campaigned on Ganga:

‘Dainik Jagran’, under its social concerns, had launched a communal campaign in the past on the cleanliness of the Ganges. Under this, along with sensitizing the citizens, agencies responsible for the cleanliness of Ganga were alerted. Introducing the importance of Ganga, Dainik Jagran made the common man realize his responsibility towards it through this campaign. At the same time, he also played his social responsibility to awaken the system from sleep due to the sluggish actions of Namami Gange.
