"And banks of river Ganga becoming open defecation free shall be an important stage towards maintaining the purity of the river " Modi said.
"Devotion towards the Ganga and Gangotri should not only be shown but steps should be taken and for that. We also need to ensure that mentality to harm Ganga should also be removed from the mindsets of people " Modi said.
Appealing to the people residing near the banks of the river Modi asked: "Will you all participate in the cleanliness mission to Ganga clean? I know that like people of Bijnor many others would join the cleanliness movement.
