Mysuru, September 8:- “Cleanliness should begin at home. Dry and wet wastes should be segregated at homes. Everyone has to consider ‘maintaining cleanliness’ as their responsibility,” said Swachh Bharat mission brand ambassador for Mysuru, former Indian cricketer Javagal Srinath.
He was speaking at ‘Clean Mysuru’ programme organised at Raghavendranagar in the city on Friday organised under the auspices of Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) and The Times of India.
“The works undertaken by MCC workers is much appreciated. It is a difficult task to keep the city clean. We complain that the city is not maintained well with garbage strewn all around. But we too are responsible for this. We throw wastes everywhere. It is our responsibility to join hands with pourakarmikas in keeping the city clean. Citizens have to use dustbins provided for dry and wet wastes. It helps the pourakarmikas to manage waste effectively,” said Srinath.
Awareness was created with regard to waste segregation at houses. The students took oath to maintain cleanliness on the occasion.
Mayor M J Ravi Kumar, MCC commissioner G Jagadish, corporator Sandesh Swamy, and others were present.
