NEW DELHI: Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti, who is engaged in an ambitious task of cleaning the Ganga and Yamun rivers, today took a dig at Congress in Lok Sabha for disrupting Parliament as she asked whether Sonia Gandhi would take the lead to clean the "dirt" in the House.

Replying to questions on cleaning Yamuna, Bharti said under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Ganga and Yamuna rivers would be cleaned but wondered who would clean the dirt inside the House.

Pointing towards the Congress members, who were shouting slogans in the Well of the House, she said some day they come with the issue of Arunachal Pradesh, some day they come with the CBI raid on an officer of the Delhi government, some day with some other issue.

"Who will clean this dirt. Ma'am (Speaker) will you ensure that this dart will be cleaned? Will the Congress President take the lead in cleaning this dirt," she asked amidst thumping of desk by BJP members.
