Hundreds of people, including women and children, thronged to get a glimpse of rath. They were queued up with pamphlets, giving message of making the Ganga pollution-free.
The Ganga Jagran Rath reached Danapur cantonment area at 9.30 am. Later, the rath arrived at Gandhi Ghat via Patliputra roundabout, Dak Banglow crossing and Ashok Rajpath.
The people performed arti at Gandhi Ghat with a pledge to make the river pollution-free. They presented cultural programme on the occasion.
It’s worth mentioning that India’s largest read newspaper Dainik Jagran started a historic initiative to make Ganga pollution-free. The Ganga Jagran Rath began its glorious yatra on June 27 from Uttarakhand. The yatra will conclude at Ganga Sagar in West Bengal.
During the yatra, thousands of people, including public representatives, have promised to cleanse Ganga.
BJP MP from Patliputra Ram Kripal Yadav promised to raise voice over cleansing Ganga in the Parliament. Yadav said, “I will suggest the measures to make Ganga pollution-free in the Parliament.”
“I will promote people in my constituency not to pollute Ganga and extend full support in making the river clean,” added Yadav.
