You are the president of National River Ganga Basin Authority. Now Ganga has become National River with Gazette notification. NRGBA was formed to save Ganga not to destroy it.
The Group of Ministers who sanctioned to start Loharinag Pala Project which was closed by Central Govt. in 2009(enc. letter 19th feb 2009). Dr. G D Agarwal was given written statement by Energy Minister Mr. S Shinde when Ganga was not gezetted as a National river.
Now the GoM have no legal authority to encroach upon National River Ganga Basin Authority but GoM is trying to insult National River Ganga damaging the Religious sentiments, Mother Ganga, ecology and environment. The whole world is looking upon young Indians and democracy of India who fail to save the pride of humanity Mother Ganga.
It seems Dr. G D Agarwal and India has been deceived by the Govt. of India. He is 79 years old senior Scientist and has served Govt. of India in capacity of first secretary to Central Pollution Control Board.
