Union minister of water resources Uma Bharti has said that the government will speed up the river cleansing project after Diwali. She said the national cleanliness campaign launched by PM Narendra Modi will also gain more speed post Diwali. Bharti was talking to the media in Mhow on Thursday.

The former MP chief minister was on a private visit to Indore and Mhow, where she paid condolences at the residence of former BJP activist Vishal Sharma who died recently.

Later, she offered prayers at the Lodheshwar Mahadev temple in Gaikwad area in Mhow where she also addressed BJP workers. She asked the party men to work towards effective implementation of the Centre's welfare schemes and laid special emphasis on national cleanliness campaign.

On Wednesday, Bharti in New Delhi had discussed issues relating to the urban component of Ganga river with Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu. The two ministers broadly discussed issues relating to release of untreated sewage water from 118 cities and towns in five states into the river.
