The new sites would be constructed in villages falling in a radius of five kilometres of the Ganga river from Bijnor to Ballia as per PTI report published on January 30, 2021.
According to the plan being executed in co-operation with the Tourism department.
The Ganga aarti will take place on the basis of public participation and will be performed at a fixed time every day.
The Yogi government is endeavouring to bring in Uttar Pradesh a good confluence of religio-cultural development as well a hub of technological and industrial centre. A Uttar Pradesh houses Kashi, which its rich culture and tradition is the oldest city in the world older than history older, than civilization, older than human memory and older than time itself.
