‘Mission 15th August’ Organised To Sensitise Public About Swachhta
GUWAHATI: The Guwahati youths’ initiative ‘Swachh Bharat Prahari’ which is working towards making the city clean, organised a programme on the occasion of Independence Day called ‘Mission 15th August’, with a view to create awareness and encourage people to join in their initiative.
Commissioner, Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC), Debeswar Malakar, was the chief guest for the occasion.
Swachh Bharat Prahari (SBP) is a group of volunteers from Guwahati who believe in the idea of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. They started working on this mission from July 22 last and people from various spheres of life have joined and supported the movement.
Amit Maloo, a resident of Guwahati and one of the founding members of SBP informed G Plus that several events related to cleanliness were organised during the programme. These included street plays, swachhta shapath among others.
“We shared our inputs as collected on the field with the GMC commissioner and also gave our suggestions which would help in making the city cleaner,” said Maloo.
Some of their suggestions included playing pre-recorded messages on loudspeakers asking people to throw garbage in dustbins, installing CCTV cameras in places which see a lot of littering, among others.
The organisers also rewarded ‘Swachhta Heroes’ who had played an integral role in the initiative.
