Results of Ganga Quest 2021 Announced on Occasion of Ganga Dussehra

The final results of Ganga Quest 2021, an online quiz contest, were announced today on occasion of Ganga Dussehra. The Union Minister for Jal Shakti, Gajendra Singh Shekhawat congratulated and felicitated the winners. Ganga Quest is an online quiz contest & an educational program to sensitize children and youth on Riven Ganga & other rivers of India and the environment. The quiz was organised by National Mission for Clean Ganga, Jal Shakti Ministry in association with Tree Craze Foundation.

Gajendra Singh Shekhawat interacted with the winners and the volunteers who are working on the ground to strengthen the Namami Gange program. Shekhawat asked the volunteers for feedback to further strengthen the program. He said, “The physical infrastructure (like STPs, Ghats and crematoriums, etc) built under Namami Gange can be seen by all, but the far bigger achievement is of reviving people’s awareness and devotion towards the sacred Ganga.” He added that just considering our rivers as goddesses will not serve any purpose if that doesn’t reflect in our treatment of rivers. We have to take responsibility. The minister complimented the efforts of NMCG, TCF and all volunteers and community-based agencies such as Ganga VicharManch, Ganga Doot, Ganga Mitras, Ganga Praharis, GTF, etc and several organisations and appealed to continue and organise a drive in their own organisation for keeping Ganga, other rivers and water bodies healthy.
