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?
