The clean India campaign “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” launched by PM Modi has been heartily followed by ACTA (Amritsar Computer Traders’ Association).
ACTA and a team of Amritsar Improvement Trust (AIT), led by its chairperson Sandeep Rishi, kicked off a sanitation drive at Nehru Shopping complex, IT Hub, Amritsar.
A section of residents along with ACTA members and other dealers located in the IT Hub actively participated and pledged to follow the cleanliness drive.
ACTA and AIT initiated to keep the bins and brooms in the Hub so that regular cleanliness can be handled by the maintenance people also.
With a view to streamline the cleanliness drive municipal corporation commissioner, Pardeep Sabharwal, said, “Irrespective of the administrative constraints, the MC would take it as its moral duty to make all the areas in the city garbage free. We all have to take the responsibility of keeping the city clean
He said that a planned strategy could be worked out in coordination with AIT chairperson and ACTA. To sustain the cleanliness drive, Sabharwal said that two wards were being picked up every day. With the cooperation of residents, the MC teams had been removing filth from these wards.
Sandeep Sethi, general secretary, ACTA said, “We should give equal importance to cleanliness like we give to our daily work. Equal standards of cleanliness are very important. Cleanliness and clean India will create a healthy and wealthy living environment for us.”
