Prime News, National, Karnataka, Constitution, Democracy, Freedom, Railways, Mysuru, October 4:- Rahul Agarwal, Divisional Railway Manager, South Western Railway, Mysuru division, paid homage to Mahatma Gandhi on his 152nd birth anniversary in a simple function held at Gandhi Vana near Railway Sports Ground here on Saturday (October 2).
                                                                                                                                                                                Speaking on this occasion, Agarwal said that in recent years, the Ministry of Railways has been pushing to give a boost to the government’s biggest cleanliness mission – the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in many ways.
“From introducing innovative sanitation in trains to green train corridors and making the tracks zero discharge free zone, the railways were leaving no stones unturned when it came to Swachhta. Keeping the mission of ‘Swachh Rail-Swachh Bharat’ in mind, the Mysuru division observed a special cleanliness fortnight drive – a ‘Swachhta Pakhwada’ across its entire network from September 16 to October 2. Each day of the ‘Pakhwada’ was given a special ‘swachh’ theme such as clean food, clean water, clean residential colonies, clean stations, clean toilets, clean workplace, and cleanliness dialogue with the public. The start of the drive was with the theme of Swachh Awareness, in which railway staff pledged to keep these clean and Swachh, and different activities were held across the division to raise awareness about cleanliness, said the DRM.
                                                                                                                                                                                    The DRM also administered the ‘cleanliness pledge’ to officers and staff at Mysuru Railway Station on the occasion.
The housekeeping staffs at the station were felicitated for their dedicated work. Cloth bags were distributed to rail passengers to reduce single-use plastics. Prizes were given away to the winners of the online essay competition on Swachh Bharat.
