Patna: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Uma Bharati, who is in Patna for the last three days as part of her ongoing Ganga Samagra Yatra, while taking part in the Ganga Arti at Gandhi Ghat in Patna on Sunday, made a case for the river Ganges for the World Heritage Site saying if the Taj Mahal could be accorded the World Heritage status, there was no reason Ganga couldn't enjoy the same position.

"Millions of people are connected with the Ganges so it is only appropriate for it to have the World Heritage status," Bharati said.

Praising the state government to have taken initiative to launch the ambitious 'Clean Ganga' campaign, the BJP leader said that other states should emulate Bihar and help fight pollution in the river that has a special place in the hearts of all Indians.

The former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh also called for Patna'ites to help form a human chain on December 2 to promote awareness about the need to keep Ganga clean.

Once again taking shot at the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), Bharati said that it would impact only 15% of the top echelon while having devastating economic impact on the rest 85%.

"This is a very bad policy and it must be withdrawn immediately," she said.

Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, Bihar BJP state President Dr. C. P. Thakur, party national general secretary Dharmendra Pradhan, Arun Sinha, Giriraj Singh, Mangal Pandey, and Sanjay Mayukh were among many others who also spoke on the occasion.
