PM Modi to launch eight projects of Namami Gange online on September 29.

On September 29, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate eight projects prepared under the Namami Gange program online. Director General of the National Clean Ganga Mission, Rajiv Ranjan Mishra has sent the Chief Secretary Om Prakash the list of projects that the Prime Minister is to release.

This has been confirmed by Project Director Uday Raj Singh. Among these projects are seven sewerage treatment plants (STPs) installed on the drains flowing into the Ganges River. Four of these eight projects have been set up in Haridwar, two in Rishikesh, one each in Munikireti and Badrinath.
At the same time, a Ganga observation center has also been constructed in Haridwar. All these projects cost about Rs 520 crore. The state government has been asked to arrange an online release program by sending a list of projects on behalf of the central government. PM Modi can also inspect all the schemes online. During this time, he can also get information about the project from the concerned authorities.
Dobra-Chandhi bridge will be inaugurated later
The Prime Minister was also to inaugurate the first Dobra Chanthi suspension bridge along with the sewerage treatment plants, but it has been postponed. The reason for this is the security audit of the bridge. According to Secretary Loniv RK Sudhanshu, the security audit of the bridge is currently underway. It will be released only after its completion.
