This would help not only those travelling on a holy pilgrimage, but also ensure fishermen get better quality fish, she said.
Uma Bharti, here as part of her 'Save Ganga' campaign, took a holy dip in all 22 holy waters in the famous Ramanathaswamy temple, amid tight security.
Bharti said the 'Save Ganga' movement would be taken up in three phases - a yatra from Gangasagar to Gangotri between September 20 to October 28, an environment experts' seminar in Delhi on November 6 and a public human chain on December 2 - for a pollution-free Ganga.
Rameswaram (TN): Senior BJP leader Uma Bharti on Monday stressed the need to clean and purify important holy rivers across the country, including the Ganga, Cauvery, Narmada, Yamuna and the Brahmaputra.
