Civic workers add colour to cleanliness

Palike workers across all wards drew close to 250 rangolis to get rid of the garbage black spots.

Having painstakingly cleared the mounting garbage from the black spots, the BBMP has brought a little colour to those places.

The civic body has organised a rangoli competition in close to 500 erstwhile garbage black spots in the city, making the places resplendent, while also ensuring that they are off-limit for any future littering.

Civic workers are enthusiastically taking part in the festival, adding colour to cleanliness. The festival is schedule to go on until November 5.

“The rangoli festival is a great initiative,” said a volunteer from Ugly Indian. “Rangoli is a great way to get rid of garbage black spots. If people are aware that they shouldn’t litter the streets, it would be possible to reduce the garbage black spots to a great extent. If the process continues, it’ll be good for the city.”

He said the volunteers have been working with the BBMP for a week and drew rangolis in 15 wards. The initiative has also received good response from the public. “They’ve stopped littering these places.”

BBMP’s special commissioner for solid waste management Randeep D said the civic body has received good response from the south, west and east zones. He said the BBMP has seized 100 vehicles dumping garbage at night. “We’ve (already) deployed marshals. From tomorrow, they’ll be present across all zones.”
