Jammu Tawi, May 19
Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) Chairman and Former Minister Harsh Dev Singh and others leaders conducted cleanliness drive at Nai Basti and its adjoining areas in ward 23 today under Swach Jammu Abhiyan.
The volunteers carrying brooms, spades and sacs cleaned the streets and lanes picked up the plastic waste, polythene material and garbage to dump them into the local municipal waste container for disposal.
NPP leaders educated the local shop keepers and residents about the harmful effects of the exposed ‘nallah’ on human health and asked them to stand united to get rid of the menace.
Surprised by the heaps of garbage and solid waste scattered all over the streets of Nai Basti and its adjoining areas, he said that the dangerous unhygienic condition of the ward 23 had posed a grave threat to the public health and sanitation which would further worsen during the monsoons.
He further said that the accumulation of polythene bags and plastic pet bottles in the sewers was mainly responsible for the frequent blockades due to lack of appropriate sanitation policy, and regretted that polythene being a major pollutant and health hazard for humans and animals had been banned all over was still being brazenly used in the state. He asked the inhabitants of the ward 23 to keep their vicinity clean and religiously follow the garbage disposal regimen to maintain hygiene for healthy living.
Balwant Singh Mankotia and Yash Paul Kundal expressed shock over the mass dumping of untreated waste into the river Tawi every day. They adjured the civil society, students and youth to join the Panthers party’s Clean Jammu Mission to remove the title of ‘dirtiest city’ given to the city of temples.
Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Pratap, Parshotam Parihar, Atul Mahajan, Nirmal Kishore, Bodh Raj, Rohit Sharma, Paramjit Marshal, Partap Singh, Rashpaul Singh and several others were also the part of the cleanliness drive.
