Speaking on the occasion Brigadier Rajesh Negi, President Cantonment Board said that cleanliness should be way of life. Every citizen should shoulder responsibility to keep the surrounding clean, healthy and green.

The abhiyan was formally launched in the Military Cantonment area on September 18. The soldiers, their families and teaching staff were fully involved to get the Military Cantonment neat and clean and sensitizing their peer groups to assume collective responsibility for nation’s cleanliness. All departments and various centres of the cantonment launched cleanliness drive by cleaning lawns, open spaces, roads, and sewage system, over and above the routine cleaning carried out by the sanitation department.
