外文标题:Make Ganga users pay for clean-up: Activists


NEW DELHI: The 40 crore people who benefit from the Ganga have to be made contributors in its rejuvenation and governance of the water body made transparent if the river is to be saved, activists said on the eve of a mega meeting called by the government on Monday.

The meeting, Ganga Manthan, organized by the National Mission for Clean Ganga, is being billed as the first national dialogue on the river. The daylong meet will be attended by Union ministers, MPs, scientists, experts, religious leaders and NGOs.



“Ganga can only be saved if all stakeholders are aware of the threats,” said environmentalist Anil Joshi ahead of the meet. “That includes the 40-odd crore consumers who use Ganga in some way or another. Government has to find ways of taking contributions from them in a clean-up plan.

Joshi, founder of NGO Himalayan Environmental Studies and Conservation Organization, said the river must be divided into different ecological zones and specific strategies developed for each zone. Activists said the new government must probe why expenditure running into thousands of crores has failed to improve the river. “The first step is to make institutions connected with rivers accountable and transparent,” said water activist Himanshu Thakkar of South Asia Network on Dams, Rivers and People.



“There are as many as 22 sewage treatment plants in Delhi. Did you know most of these do not work? Government has spent thousands of crores in creating infrastructure but we know little about how these are faring,” Thakkar said. Vishwambhar Nath Mishra, president of Varanasi’s Sankat Mochan Foundation (SMF) which has been working to clean the Ganga for three decades, identified sewage as a major river pollutant.

“Not a single drop of sewage should go into Ganga. Sewage accounts for 95% of river pollution in big cities such as Varanasi, Kanpur and Allahabad. These cities need an appropriate and foolproof collection system, which should be gravity-based and not power dependent,” he said, adding there are technologies to harness energy, nutrients, manure and clean water from sewage which need to be used.


从事恒河清理工作三十年的瓦拉纳西某基金会主席Vishwambhar Nath Mishra认为废水是重要的河流污染物。

Initiate bathing and dumping fees. All the houses that dump their sewage directly into the river must pay!


Hemant Tokas (Unknown)
Yes good suggestion instead of throwing money in Ganges on the name of religious ritual…please donate for the clean up of Ganges


CA Tarun Lohiya (Unknown)
All the industries throwing there industrial wastes in river Ganga should be penalised. They should be charged for the clean up expenses.

make mandatory for every one who uses the ganga river to pay for the maintenance and up keep. this holy river is become a dump-yard and its water is unsafe. please keep india clean and all its river hygiene. don’t throw any sort of debris. have some conscience and pride towards cleanliness. its sad but true majority of indians don’t have any pride in cleanliness or hygiene. they are so filthy and repulsive. its a shame on them.

The problem is how to control the Aam Aadmi open defecating on the banks as well as the cremation and dumping of bodies in Varanasi. This will need a mindset change

Please help in cleaning Ganga & other rivers also. Don’t pollute them.

The government always taxes the people when it comes to development. If people are going to pay for civil works, then where will be funding go..into Politician’s pockets? First make the change and then ticket the people. The same way toll booths are setup. the Roads are constructed first and then the toll collected not vice versa.

Why part of the Ganga can’t be given to Private sector to clean and develop business? Foreign investment will come and develop. The will make their own Ganga lakes with purification plants , Helipads, temples, Resorts and water sport etc only affordable people can use. 5 Star Ganga…….100% Pure ,10 lakhs per person imagine the revenue….


Veerendra Kumar (Bangalore)
Everyone should contribute and work hard to make Ganga clean and a safe resource.


prashantpeter (ludhiana,punjab)
even after collecting money , will it be properly UTILISED or FUTILISED


Jay K (Canada)
Beside users, abusers should be charged ten times .. How many companies are letting their pollutants flow down to this river?

The root problem is corruption. The money goes into the pockets of all and sundry.

  1. 恒河水还是很干净的,如果非要说不干净那么大海也不干净,你想想啊有多少鱼要排便,各种动物以及人都要往海里排便,鱼死了各种动物死尸都在水里泡着,人还要进去洗澡游泳,想想吧还是在家用地下水洗澡最干净。

    • 是啊,那些无神论者怎么能理解恒河水的干净呢……他们宁愿追捧韩国人的粪酒,却不能理解俺们印度人心目中神圣的能够荡涤灵魂的恒河水……

    • 大海本来就不干净。没人到海里或游泳场里洗澡吧?游完之后不冲一下?而且还有一个“量”和“度”的关系,也就是所谓自净能力的幅度;就游泳场而言,一群人在一个池子里游泳,别的不说,小孩偷偷在里面撒尿也正常吧如果不至少隔天换水,这水能游?再严重点,小孩控制不住肛扩肌在小儿童池里拉屎了,能游?因为这池子水已经不能“自净”了。而大海来说也是一样,大海那么广阔,一定程度的小污染小排放在活水带动下就已经扩散淡化了,但是同样的,如果这排放放到江河里,污染程度就不能与大海相比了。而恒河已经不是鱼排便、人畜粪便或者自然水生生物死亡的程度,去恒河游泳只有一句话可以形容:何不食肉糜?

  2. 恒河水呀,烂呀么烂的蓝呀!说道飘尸这事,我想起我们这一个事件(吃饭前不宜)! 有个小偷到小区里面偷东西被发现,后来被追不知道躲哪了,一个多星期后,小区的自来水出现淡红色,还有腐臭味,物业到水池检查才发现,水池里面死了个人,已经腐烂,这小区好多住户看到水就想吐!

  3. NTrasi (Unknown)Why part of the Ganga can’t be given to Private sector to clean and develop business? Foreign investment will come and develop. The will make their own Ganga lakes with purification plants , Helipads, temples, Resorts and water sport etc only affordable people can use. 5 Star Ganga…….100% Pure ,10 lakhs per person imagine the revenue….为什么不把恒河的部分河段交给私营部门来清理并发展商业?外资也可以进来,开挖恒河湖泊,周围兴建净化厂、小型直升机场、寺庙、度假村,发展水上运动等老百姓消费得起的项目。五星级的恒河,100%纯正…你们老百姓每天49卢比。。。拿什么养水上运动。。。当然裸身跳入恒河并喝几口的这么喜闻乐见的项目你们不是天天做吗。。。恒河绝对是100%纯正的印度味道。。。那***词咋说的来的。。。味道好极了啊。。。

    • 小型直升机场:谁停。。。三哥的1卢布兑换10万美元吧。。。果然是超级大国的范儿。。。 寺庙:还治理恒河干吗。。。捐钱给寺庙。。。让大神显圣自理恒河嘛。。。分分钟的事儿。。。 度假村:搞集体轮的节奏吗。。。三哥可有蹲点的地方了。。。 水上运动:游泳呗。。。反正你们大街上就便便。。。穿不穿裤头谁在乎。。。肯定个个消费得起。。。 五星级恒河:首先不能五星,那是眯眯眼的标志,咋能用在神河上。。。然后自己给自己定个10亿星。。。宇宙第一大国不能连十都没数到的数定位自己。。。

    • 很多印度人可是把恒河作为理想的葬身之地的,这可能引起宗教观念与环境意识之间的矛盾,可能引起一帮垂死的老人与罪恶的当局之间发生冲突,而这一切仅仅是为了捍卫他们“葬身恒河的权利”……

  4. 三哥的媒体真的该去喝一碗恒河水了。稍微有点逻辑的就知道,谁作孽,谁买单。所以,应该是谁污染恒河水,谁就应该买单。这下子好了,污染的人逃之夭夭,却有他人来承担责任。这可不是放屁那么简单:放屁的人躲开,其他人来闻???

  5. 不仅是俺们印度人的事情,在俺们动手之前,俺还想知道中国佬的态度……如果他们不能保证上游的环境,那么俺们印度人的努力只能付诸东流……他们必须作出保证,否则俺们就武力收回XZ地区……可恶的中国佬!!!(俺们印度人考虑问题很超前,也很全面,正如你现在看到的……

  6. 印度史诗《罗摩衍那》记载“恒河的起源”说,大神湿婆和乌玛性交,一次就达100年之久,中间从不间断,山崩地裂,众神恐惧,就央求湿婆把他的精液倾泻出来,就成了恒河,这就是恒河之水从天而来的原因 。来。。。。。。三哥们干了这杯恒河水 ,这可是你们所谓的神的精华啊!

  7. 阿三应该大声的问墓地:屎往哪拉,尿往哪撒,尸体往哪仍,垃圾往哪倒,洗澡在哪洗,狗牛死了不扔恒河里扔哪,高潮了不喝恒河水喝啥,简直是站着说话不下腰痛,皿煮万岁,印度必胜

  8. 那些想要干了这杯恒河水的人可得想清楚喽!日后你要为消费恒河之水买单啦———-。开个玩笑,撩以消遣,其实在印度要治理肮脏的恒河,需先过三关,一是企业污水排放,二是文化宗教,三是民间陋俗。然后再来谈能力、技术和行政效率。
