Mangaluru, 11 Feb: Ramakrishna Mission carried out 10th voluntary cleaning under 5th phase of Swacchata Abhiyan at Service Bus Stand and surrounding areas on Sunday, February 10 from 7.30am to 10.30am.


It was flagged off at 7.30am by Roshan Roche, secretary, ICYM and Gurudatta Shenoy, president of Paint Dealers Association. Mohan Kottary, Mahesh Kamath, Rajendra Shetty, Ramesh Shenoy, Sridhar Kamath, Imtiyaz Sheikh, Denzel, Sapna Neermarga and many others were present on the occasion.


Speaking on the occasion, Umanath Kotekar, Coordinator of Swacchata Abhiyan said, ‘It is a positive development to see that Swacchata Abhiyan is not just sweeping an area clean but a noble cause to bring together different people with the same noble intention and acting in unison for the upliftment of the society. Bringing together these noble minds is a pre requisite for a noble society and Ramakrishna Mission leading such initiatives is noteworthy.’



Hanumantharayappa, Deputy Police Commissioner, Mangaluru City who participated as a chief guest said, ‘It’s significant that all people regardless of caste, creed and colour are participating in Swacchata Abhiyan. All should inculcate cleanliness in their households and then only we can dream of clean India.’


After flagging off, volunteers cleaned the Service Bus stand. About 50 members of ICYM under Adlin Jyothsna cleaned the areas where passengers sit and wait for the buses. Members of Nivedita Balaga and Sharada Mahila Vrinda cleaned the outer premises of the service bus stand. Members of Paint Dealers Association cleaned the market and surrounding areas near the bus stand. Large heap of garbage lying on the road leading towards Rao & Rao Circle was removed and cleared. Building debris lying in a corner of the service bus stand were removed using JCB by Dinesh Karkera and other volunteers. Suresh Shetty and other volunteers visited the street vendors selling fish and urged them to keep the area clean.


Special Works: Several special works were carried out in the 10th drive along with cleanliness drive. Pillars in the area where passengers sit were cleaned and were painted by 12 expert painters using 50 litres of paint. Some of the seats there were in very bad shape and passengers were facing difficulty. Several newly designed seats were erected in the place for passengers by Uday K P, Preetham Mugil and others. Old seats were painted thus given facelift by members of Paint Dealers Association.  Suraj Mangaluru and Others cleaned the spot illegally used as urinals by passers-by by using water tanker.
