Sensitised on sanitation

GANGTOK, 25 Sept [IPR]: The month-long National Sanitation Campaign for Swachh Bharat kicked off for Sikkim from MG Marg on Thursday. The campaign was launched simultaneously with the National Sanitation Campaign of the Government of India. RMDD Minister, SB Subedi, flagging off the campaign, spoke on the importance of cleanliness and hygiene.
Amplifying the axiom of “re-using and re-cycling”, the Minister planted saplings in flowerpots made entirely from discarded car tyres. Also on the day, waste carrying vehicles for the Liquid Waste Management projects of Namthang, Lachen and Tashiding were flagged off. The Minister also flagged off a mountain bike rally and a students’ rally seeking to convey the message for Clean Sikkim.
Earlier, delivering the welcome address, the RM&DD Secretary, DR Nepal, spoke at length about the need for proactive involvement of the people in the mission and outlined the action plan of the campaign starting with rural-level sensitization.
