35th edition of Swachh Mangaluru - Marnamikatta sees cleaning

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Jan 18, 2016:  The  35th edition of the drive was a bit slow with the news that the Union Minister for Water Resources Uma Bharati was not taking part in the campaign.

Swachh Mangalu...Uma  Bharati was supposed to come by train to the city on Jan 17, Sunday and attend the function to mark the end of the 35th week cleaning programme before proceeding to Udupi for the Paryaya celebrations.  Because of the delay in the train, she cancelled the Mangaluru visit and got down at Udupi.

Volunteers first took up the work of restoring the partly damaged circle in Marnamikatta. While one group took up cleaning of the road stretch between Marnamikatta Circle and Nandigudda Circle, another group cleared weeds and other waste on the stretch between Marnamikatta Circle and Morgan’s Gate. The third group of volunteers cleared waste on the road stretch between the Circle and Jeppu Market.

A volunteer operated an earth mover for nearly two hours to clear construction waste dumped near a newly constructed apartment and other pockets in Marnamikatta area. A few volunteers climbed over an old public toilet, cleared the weeds grown on its roof. They cleared the waste dumped near the toilet building and painted the building to give it a new look.

These were part of the 35th week of the Swachh Mangaluru campaign taken up under the auspices of Ramakrishna Mission here on Jan 17, Sunday. Students from different schools and colleges took part in the campaign too.

Everyone being apart f the city must make active participation in the maintaining the cleanliness of the place. Only then we can be successful in our mission.

It is the public who co-operate in the Swacch Bahath to the fullest.The MLA’s and MP’s have to be made to participate in the campaign. Just see a single leaders house where they can keep their own house clean without the help of the house maid. No way.

On the whole the people of Mangalore offer a helping hand in the maintaining the cleanliness of the city.
