Cleanliness is every citizen’s responsibility: Mishra

ITANAGAR, Sep 4: PHED Minister Wangki Lowang called on Governor BD Mishra at the Raj Bhavan here on Tuesday, and invited the governor to launch the ‘Swachhta Hi Seva’ drive, which is aimed at accelerating the mass movement for realizing the vision of a clean India.
Accepting the invitation, the governor appreciated the nodal department for the initiative, which he said would reinforce the principle that cleanliness is the responsibility of each and every citizen.
Mishra said there is a need for “strong leadership spirit and an efficient method to inculcate the basic habit of cleanliness and good hygienic practice amongst the masses.”
He suggested that the best way to promote and practice cleanliness would be to “involve the children and help them to imbibe the habit of cleanliness and good hygienic practice.”
Lowang informed that, as a precursor to the launch of the 150th birth anniversary celebration of Mahatma Gandhi and in the run-up to the 4th anniversary of Swachh Bharat Mission, Swachhta Hi Seva is being planned to be launched in the state capital on 15 September, and that would continue till 2 October.
