'Citizens must have social responsibility towards cleanliness'

Jungle Lodges and Resorts Corporation Chairman A N Mahesh has called upon people to set aside differences and party loyalties to join hands with the Swacch Bharat campaign.

He inaugurated the state-level science seminar organised by the district administration, Zilla Panchayat and Department of Public Instructions
for High School students at Shikshakara Bhavana in Chikkamagaluru on Monday.

“Despite the increase in population, there will be no relative increase in the available land which will remain the same. If everyone thinks that nothing will happen by littering waste, cleanliness can never be achieved. The Prime Minister has symbolically initiated the Swacch Bharat campaign.

“But, it will be successful only when every citizen develops a sense of social responsibility. There should be no politics involved in the matter of cleanliness,” he added.

Zilla Panchayat vice president S N Ramaswamy Shettigadde said that Chikkamagaluru has been declared an open defecation free district. He said that the contribution of students was significant in this regard as they created awareness among elders.

Zilla Panchayat Education and Health Standing Committee president Shamanna Banakal said that educated people litter more waste. Youth should initiate a social movement to create awareness among people.

Zilla Panchayat member B G Somashekharappa and DDPI Basavaraj were present on the occasion.
