Dr Mahesh Sharma, Union Minister of State for Culture (Independent Charge) and Tourism (Independent Charge) and Civil Aviation launched a special cleaning campaign yesterday at the recently renovated historic Assi Ghat in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. Launching a cleaning drive at the excavated and restored historic Assi Ghat, the Minister of Tourism inaugurated a world class Sulabh public toilet on the occasion. Sharma while lauding the effort of Sulabh called upon other organisations to come forward to adopt and clean other ghats. He informed that a plan is being drafted to clean garbage by using boats as garbage disposal is a major problem in the historic city due to narrow lanes. Now boats will ferry garbage to dump at certain points.

Sharma said that a comprehensive plan for the all round development and beautification of the Ghats of Varanasi and cleaning of River Ganga is underway to fulfill the wishes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He announced introduction of a special project for restoration and beautification of the ghats. He said a plan has already been finalised to hold light and sound shows at Assi Ghat soon.
