Swachh Bharat Abhiyan initiative on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti
PES University has taken the initiative of conducting Swachh Bharat Abhiyan on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti on 2nd October 2018 at Lalbagh Botanical garden, Bangalore, under the guidance of Dr. M R Doreswamy, Chancellor, PES University and the staff of lalbagh.
The students had an enthusiastic outlook towards the event and 300+ of them participated in this cleanliness drive.Addressing this enthusiastic crowd, Dr. M R Doreswamy said that the PES University is celebrating Gandhi Jayanti by conducting this Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The initiative which was started 4 years ago by our honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji has reached such a great milestone that today we are paying our tribute to Mahatma Gandhi ji through it.
He added that while the PM himself takes broom and cleans the country, the youngsters could definitely make a difference. Lacks of toilets have been constructed and our PM has given a new direction to the drive.
The chancellor also stated that there was a time when the country was looked down by the westerners due to cleanliness issues and now the entire country is proud to see the change. Stating the example of Amitabh Bachan himself cleaning a village after seeing no change in people which afterwards made a lot of difference, Dr. M R Doreswamy stated this was a second consecutive year of PES University celebrating the activity of Swachh Bharat.
He also stated the donation of 100 dustbins throughout the stretch of lalbagh alongside and installation of 30 dustbins in the first instalment was done today. He has stated about the initative will be taken at lalbagh for construction of toilet. He further motivated the students to adopt lalbagh and participate actively in the event for which the students’ response was outstanding.
The main motto of this drive is to spread awareness about keeping the surroundings and hence the country clean. To achieve this vision of CSR Club of PESU, the students began the event by conducting a serene awareness walk which highlighted the importance of waste segregation and management.
The students were grouped and allotted areas in order to cover the large area of lalbagh efficiently headed by group leaders. Taking forward the idea of green, clean and pollution free country of our PM Narendra Modi ji was the main agenda of the event.
