GUWAHATI, Oct 12 � As part of the nationwide Swachh Bharat campaign, residents from all sections under the aegis of Agarwal Sabha and Maharaja Agrasen Charitable Trust participated in a cleanliness drive at Fancy Bazaar, AT Road, Athgaon and Ganeshguri areas.
The people cleaned roads, by-lanes, footpaths and surrounding areas as part of the drive.
Kamup (Metro) Deputy Commissioner M Angamuthu who attended the programme lauded the people for their enthusiasm in the campaign and urged them to make it a sustained exercise in order to be a long-term solution to the city�s filth and dirt.
�We need the people�s cooperation for keeping the city clean, as the municipal bodies alone cannot maintain its hygiene,� he said. President of Agarwal Sabha, Ram Avtar Agarwal said that the Sabha would undertake a project of setting up sufficient number of public toilets across Kamrup (Metro) district, initially beginning with 11 toilets in the city.
