NEW DELHI: As part of the ‘Swachhta Hi Sewa’ campaign, events were organised at more than 500 locations by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi on Sunday.
Delhi lieutenant governor VK Saxena offered ‘shramdaan’ on Jagatpuri Road from Bihari Colony to the Krishna Nagar metro station along the Shahdara Trunk Drain-1 in the Shahdara South Zone, officials said.
In line with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for “ek tareekh, ek ghanta, ek saath”, the MCD organised an hour-long ‘shramdaan’ (special cleanliness drive) from 10am to 11am, reported news agency PTI quoting the civic body as saying.
Many MPs, MLAs, area councillors, members of RWAs, market and traders associations, school and college students, staff and officers of various government departments and the general public at large teamed up to perform ‘shramdaan’ under the Swachhta Hi Sewa, a fortnight-long campaign, the civic body said in a statement.
All wings of the MCD participated in the hour-long activities, as part of the mega cleanliness drive being undertaken across the nation, on the eve of the 154th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
Under this mega campaign, various cleanliness activities have been conducted across all 12 zones and schools, hospitals and other establishments of the MCD.
Principals, teachers, ‘safai karmacharis’ and other Class IV employees and staff of all 1,534 MCD schools participated in ‘shramdaan’ activities within school premises, the statement added.
Contractors of MCD’s parking sites also enthusiastically participated in the campaign and more than 400 MCD parking lots were cleaned on the occasion, the officials said.
The ‘Swachhata Hi Seva’ campaign, which began on September 15, will culminate on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on October 2.
