Ganga – ‘National River’?

The Indian Government has declared Ganga a National River. Huh? Implying – exactly what?

Plus, you need to have something of National Importance for it to be under the purview of “protect against pollution and degradation”?

Plus, so what was Ganga up to now – multiple regional rivers: UP-Ganga, Bihar-Ganga, WB-Ganga?

I guess one can always trust the Indian government to come up with novel ‘Eureka!!’ moments.
