Posted on 2014/9/21 11:39:17 ( 254 reads )


INDIA, September 17, 2014 (Daily Pioneer): In a bid to save the environment, the State Government is all set to install an electric crematorium at Haridwar. "Union Minister for Water Resource Uma Bharati has agreed that she would consider the proposal," said Chief Minister Harish Rawat while addressing the media after meeting Bharti at the Chief Minister's residence on Tuesday late evening.

Bharti said she had come here as Prime Minister Narendra Modi's emissary. She added that she is here to support the State in saving the Ganga river from pollution. "We know Uttarakhand is already enjoying a special category status, but the disaster in 2013 annihilated the State tourism, and thus the State has become more special for Prime Minister Modi," she said.

The CM said, "We have urged Bharti to review the Eco Sensitive Zone area because it has severely dented into our development. As Ganga river is directly associated with our lifeline and it flows from Uttarakhand we are pretty serious about its cleanliness. For this, we are giving emphasis on the sewerage system and we would focus on solid waste management at the same time. As we have limited resources we would need financial help from the Union Government for its execution. Besides, we would install electric crematorium at Haridwar.""
