Where’s river Ganga in Tamil Nadu?
CHENNAI: A statement in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday that Clean Ganga Fund under corporate social responsibility (CSR) had been used in Tamil Nadu, with firms spending Rs 52 lakh in the past three years, raised eyebrows and DMK’s P Wilson tweeted: “I didn’t know Ganga flows through TN!”.
To a question raised by Wilson, the Union corporate affairs ministry replied that ‘Clean Ganga Fund’ was among those used for CSR projects in Tamil Nadu.
When contacted, the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG), under the Union Jal Shakti ministry, said Clean Ganga Funds were not released for Tamil Nadu.
In his reply, minister of state for corporate affairs Rao Inderjit Singh said 1,316 companies spent Rs 919 crore under CSR in 2019-20 in Tamil Nadu, ag inst the Rs 627.7 crore spent in 2017-18 and Rs 829.3 crore spent in 2018-19.
印度企业事务国务部长Rao Inderjit Singh在回复中表示，2019- 2020年，1316家公司在泰米尔纳德邦的CSR支出为91.9亿卢比，而2017-18年和2018-19年分别为62.77亿卢比和82.93亿卢比。
Agro-forestry, education, healthcare, clean Ganga fund and slum area development are among the 28 sectors listed for funding under CSR in TN.
Details on the list of projects were not furnished and Wilson charged that there was no transparency. “For instance, what were the activities taken up through the Clean Ganga Funds in Tamil Nadu? I will write to the ministry seeking more details in this regard,” he said.
An NMCG offi al said Clean Ganga Funds were used for development in the Ganga basin.
DMK could also shed light on clean cooum funds that they appropriated during the 70s First put your house in order before slinging mud on others
but the central go nment is way reckless
The Modi govt. has been arm twisting the companies to donate the CSR funds to pet projects of the BJP/RSS like the Ram Mandir.
BJP took Ganga with them to Tamilnadu when it contested ions in tandem with AIADMK.
De ls Own
Loot is the word. Like the land deal for ram mandir
Vaigai river near Madurai is in fact River Ganga. It is clearly mentioned in tamil literatures especially on Thiruvelyadal" of Lord Shiva.
Maybe it is used for something else and is shown as CSR used for clean Ganga. Bemani.
This DMK will do anything to put majority community re gion in bad light
Centre may be considering the river Adyar as the river Ganga Let centre visit Chennai and see the pathetic stagnated drains water let into the river serving as breeding point to mosquitos
if they don't have answer, they bring re gion in and start making divisions
Most such funds are mis-utilised.
We shouldn't talk about anything ...
As it's hurts Hindu sentiments for BJP guys...
Pople alsoways blame BJP. see how efficient they have brought ganga to TN.
Even Ganges may flow in Tamil Nadu once co ption and dynasty po itics are weeded out in the State
This gentleman minister doesn’t even know that it is the name of the river restoration scheme all over India…! Or does he create disharmony…?
River Ganges though flows in north it is a perennial river and helps in agriculture. So we have to comprehend that Ganga need not literally flow in Tamilnadu .We are in India.I feel this is is suffice.
We can find river Ganga in TN easily. Just check in which river dead bodies are floating in TN.
Need to read documents clearly. CSR funds can be spent on cleaning Ganga as it is respected as sacred by Hindus of entire Nation.
So it's clear that question raised only for po itical reasons and nothing else.
Its nowadays anything related to Hinduism is represented as anti national and speaking a lot about. Degrading, disrespect rendered day by day.
Joke of the year … need to teach this idots where the river is …
DMK mp don't know ganga Cauvery has been linked.
