Mathura, Sep 3 - Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti stressed on cleaning the Yamuna river during a surprise visit to the ghats here.

She visited the main Vishram Ghat, Swami Ghat and the sewage pumping station at Masani. She also visited the Keshi Ghat in Vrindavan. She was shocked to see the open discharge from drains into the river.
