Patna Municipal Corporation’s Swachhagrahi campaign was launched
to commemorate 151st birth anniversary of Mahatama Gandhi with the
objective of making Swachh Patna and fulfil Bapu’s dream of Clean India.
Under the campaign all the sanitation workers were dressed
like Mahatma Gandhi. They performed all their routine work
dressed up as Mahatma Gandhi. While collecting waste of
sweeping neighborhood they also asked households to segregate
waste in their home and reduce-reuse-recycle their waste as
much as possible.
City residents were moved by this initiative and many of them pledged
to compost their wet waste and generate less waste as much as possible.
