On May 29, three days after he was sworn in as India’s 15th Prime Minister, Narendra Modi took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to announce his resignation from the Vadodra Lok Sabha constituency. “I will represent Varanasi in Lok Sabha & I look forward to this wonderful opportunity to serve Ganga Maa & work for Varanasi’s development,” he tweeted.
Mr Modi, 63, has now got cracking on his promise. The Ganga Action Plan, which was till now functioning as an arm of the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), has been placed under the supervision of Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti, who is also in-charge of the Ganga Mission, and her ministry is likely to be re-christened as Ministry for Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation.
