The Ganga has been given a new breath of fresh air. Or at least that's the plan. To save the river from further pollution, the city administration has clamped prohibitory orders on both banks of the Ganga under Section 144 of the CRPC. District Magistrate A.K. Upadhyaya says no one can use the banks "as dhobi ghats, to throw corpses and garbage or use soap while bathing".
