Kerala aims to keep Sabarimala clean

Kerala aims to keep Sabarimala clean

 The comprehensive cleaning programme is being implemented with the cooperation of 3000 volunteers, including workers of Mata Amritanandamayi Matha, Brahma Kumaris, Ayyappa Seva Sangham, Sathya Sai Seva Samithi and National Service Scheme.

The Kerala government has earmarked Rs 5 crore for the project for the first time. Unlike the customary cleaning works held annually, the current project aims at removing even those wastes which have been accumulated over years. The state government has decided to make Matha Amritanandamayi Math’s Amala Bharatam sanitation programme, part of Zero Waste Sabarimala project.

 Chandy also inaugurated a bailey bridge and a new jungle road built by Indian Army at Sabarimala.

This will help introduce one way traffic system at Sabarimala shrine which will help ease road blocks.

Earlier, at Sabarimala pilgrimage review meeting Chandy said the master plan for Sabarimala development will be implemented after the coming pilgrimage season.
Pilgrims will be allowed to arrive at Sabarimala through police approved paths only, Chandy said.
