SILCHAR, Oct 17 � The Clean and Green Assam campaign, launched by Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, got off in Cachar district with officials of the Satindra Mohan Dev Civil Hospital taking part in the drive with great enthusiasm.

The campaign was flagged off here by the Joint Director (in-charge) of Health Services, Dr Sudip Jyoti Das. A seminar on �Cleanliness and secure motherhood� was held alongside the campaign. Laying emphasis on the topic, the speakers highlighted the fact that every year, many newborn babies and pregnant mothers are affected due to unhygienic and filthy surroundings.

Dr Sadhan Kumar Roy, child specialist at the SM Dev Civil Hospital, and Dr Ashutosh Barman, gynaecologist at Borkhola Block PHC, were the chief speakers in the seminar. Dr Roy said that children often become ill because they do not wash their hands before taking food.

In the day�s meeting, conducted by the NHM district media expert Suman Choudhury, the speakers focused on adopting measures for maintaining a clean and germ-free hospital campus.

Additional Chief Medical and Health Officer Dr Sushil Chandra Das, Sub-Divisional Medical and Health (Public Health) Officer, Dr Ajit Bhattacharjee, District Community Mobiliser Amit Roy, sectoral medical officers, block programme managers and block community mobilisers took part in the seminar.

In Haflong: The North Cachar Hills Autonomous Council authority urged the employees for keeping their office areas clean by observing a cleanliness drive at the Council campus, our Correspondent adds.

NCHAC principal secretary, HK Bora, deputy secretary H Haolai along with the other officers and staff of the Council cleaned the surroundings as part of the Chief Minister�s �Poriskar Aru Seuj Sajagata Saptah�, a Clean and Green Assam drive. The objective of the cleanliness drive was to motivate the people of the district towards a clean and green environment.

A daylong seminar was also observed by the District Health Society on hygiene and motherhood on the occasion of Clean and Green Assam Awareness Week held at the office chamber of the Joint Director of Health Services.

The meeting was presided over by Dr Dipali Barman, who briefed about the scientific process of cleanliness in hospitals and the sub-centres, particularly in labour rooms to prevent infections. She explained the importance of proper handwashing before consumption of food or medicines.

Dr Barman also emphasised that the medical staff should be careful about their medical kits and that all medical instruments should be soaked in bleaching solutions for at least ten minutes and all cleanliness measures should be followed to prevent infection.
