Mangaluru, 09 Sep: Ramakrishna Mission carried out 40th voluntary cleaning under 5th phase of Swacchata Abhiyan at Kuloor locality, here on Sunday, September 8 at 7.30am.


It was flagged-off jointly by Dr Shishir Shetty, dean (student welfare), A B Shetty Dental College and Guruchandra Hegde, social worker, Kuloor.


Speaking on the occasion, Dr Shishir Shetty said, ‘As Gandhiji proclaimed Cleanliness is more important than freedom and hence everyone should give more importance to keeping their surroundings clean. Especially youths should focus more on this and spread the awareness. I appreciate the initiative taken by Ramakrishna Mission in this regard and urge all to join their hands.’



Guruchandra Hegde said, ‘If India has to raise in the scheme of nations then our first priority should be cleanliness. Slowly awareness is creeping in thanks to the motivation given by honourable Prime Minister. These Abhiyans are necessary in goading each citizen to keep his house and surroundings clean.’


On this occasion, Dr Dhanesh Kumar, Ranjan Bellarpady, Nityananda Kulal, Dhananajay Kavoor, Prof Bharathi Bhat, Dr Purushottam Chippal, Sowmya Shreevatsa, Krishnaprasad and many others were present.
