I will take care that no dam that hampers Ganga is allowed: Uma Bharti 8.5.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
After a recent tour to drought prone Bundelkhand and a whirlwind visit of all five Ganga basin states, Uma Bharti is back in the Capital. As one of the senior most ministers in the NDA government, Bharti is in charge of flagship projects such as Namami Gange, interlinking of rivers and irrigation. In a wide-ranging interview ahead of NDA’s third anniversary, Bharti spoke to DNA and was outspoken as ever. Bharti said that there needs to be more patience on the results from Namami Gange. She emphasized that while there were no differences with either the PMO or environment ministry on Ganga and Uttarakhand hydel projects, she firmly believes that projects should not kill the river and stem its ecological flow.  Excerpts: What have been your ministry's achievements in the last three years and what is the single biggest achievement?

From Goddesses to "legal persons" 9.4.2017 DNA: Mumbai
On March 20, there was a judgement by the Uttarakhand High Court which conferred the status of legal personhood to Ganga and Yamuna and "all their tributaries, streams, every natural water flowing with flow continuously or intermittently" with "all corresponding rights, duties and liabilities of a living person." The order comes close on the heels of a historic order of the New Zealand Court conferring rights of legal personhood to the Whanganui river. In contrast with the kneejerk Indian judgement, the NZ order was a culmination of one of the longest running legal battles in the country wherein the Iwi Maoris tribe fought since 1870s. Iwi spokesperson poignantly states, "rather than us being masters of the natural world, we are part of it." The ruling gave two parties the rights of representing the river, from the government and from the Maori community.
