Volunteers continue cleanliness drive

The 30th Swacch Mangaluru Abhiyan was carried out by Ramakrishna Mission in St Agnes – Mallikatta area on Sunday.

Dakshina Kannada district Sahitya Parishat president Pradeep Kumar Kalkura, MLC Capt Ganesh Karnik, Group of Art of Living under Dr Shivaram and Sumana Kamath, Students from Government First Grade College under Prof Mahesh K B, volunteers from Nivedita Balaga under Rathna Alva and Sheela Shetty, Students of Vivekananda Coaching Centre under the leadership of Vijayalakshmi participated in the drive.

The volunteers cleaned roads and footpaths near St. Agnes road leading from Agnes to Mallikatta. Heaps of garbage lying in the premises of Central library in Mallikatta were cleared. Construction debris like sand and gravels which had covered the road thus obstructing the path disturbing the pedestrians were removed.

The volunteers also cleaned two bus shelters, removed the posters etc. stuck on the walls, and painted the bus shelters thus giving a makeover beautifying the shelters. The railings of the shelter and the platform in the shelters used by public were cleaned and painted.

A circle in front of Vas bakery in the St Agnes area was in dilapidated condition. It was an eye sore for the people using the road. The circle was cleaned off the weeds and debris of garbage and railings were re-laid using cement and concrete and were painted. A display board having an outline of Mahatma Gandhi seen with a broom and cleaning the surroundings has been installed to motivate the onlookers along with the message for Swachh Mangaluru.

Two to three direction boards in the Bendoor church area that had faded and were no longer serving the purpose were cleaned and repainted thus giving a makeover. Volunteers also distributed handbills on Swachh Mangaluru Abhiyan to generate awareness among localites in the area.
