Captain Ganesh Karnik  welcomed the volunteers. Sri Mohan Bhat, Kamalaksha Pai, Bhaskar Shetty, Vasanthi Nayak,Yashodhara Chowta, Kiran Fernandes, Masa Hiro and several others were present on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Smt. Devaki Muthukrishnan said, “I really appreciate the Swacch Manas programmes under Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan. If the minds are cleansed automatically it will lead to cleaner nation. Mangalore model of the Abhiyan should be replicated all over India. I appreciate and laud the efforts of hundreds of dedicated volunteers who have assembled here in spite of severe rain  and wind”

Dedication of new Bus shelter: With the support of local people a new bus shelter has been erected at  Yekkur junction. The local public had requested several civic authorities to erect a much needed bus  shelter which had not yet seen encouraging response. Hence Team members of Swacch Yekkur approached Ramakrishna Mission Swacch Mangaluru seeking help. Within five days, volunteers  ignoring the incessant rains and wind realized the dream by their dedicated efforts. Roof, Concrete  floor, Independent seats, hoarding having message of Swacch Bharath are special characteristics of  the shelter. They were painted today and the surrounding areas were cleaned and the shelter was dedicated.


Shramadan: In spite of rains at the start,  volunteers worked hard.  Volunteers cleaned the  area surrounding the new shelter. They also removed the plastic and papers. They also cleaned the  area from Yekkur junction to National Highway of the overgrown weeds and they were transported in a tipper. The ground was levelled using a JCB. That spot is now being used as an auto stand. Sri Umanath Kotekar guided the volunteers. Suresh Shetty and other volunteers visited nearby shops and houses spreading message of awareness.

Maintenance: The spots prone to littering by public were cleaned and maintained by placing flower  pots. Volunteers under Sri Uday K P cleaned the spot in front of Cascia High school and removed weeds and overgrown grass. They also similarly cleaned the area in Marnamikatta where such spots  have been modified. Chirag, Prajwal, Vaishakh & others volunteerd in the work. As every week,  volunteers led by Souraj Mangalore, Sandip Kodikal and others removed nearly more than 500 flex  banners from Yekkur, Pumpwell, Padil areas. Members of Hindu Yuva Sena, Yekkur, Ayyappa Bhajana Mandira, Nandadeepa Mahila Mandali and  others actively participated Baba Yekkur, Satish T, Tejaswini B Acharya, Sharana Basava, Avinash  Anchan, Rajeshwari Vinayaraj, Abhishek V S and others were present.

The Ramakrishna mission has taken the most difficult task of maintaining the cleanliness of the city . It is our duty to join hands with them and make it cent percent.
