GUWAHATI: With a view to creating awareness about cleanliness and hygiene, the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) organized an awareness drive in the city today. The awareness drive begun from ABC Bus Stand in GS Road and concluded at Guwahati Club. The awareness program was addressed by GMC Commissioner Monalisa Goswami, Additional Commissioner of Guwahati Municipal Corporation Deba Kumar Mishra, and Chief Engineer of GMC Tasdiqur Rahman, Guwahati Municipal Corporation Collector Loni Borpatra Gohain, Associate Town Planner Deepak Bezbaruah and Executive Engineer of GMC Manojit Bujarbaruah among others

Officials from the GMC along with municipality workers distributed pamphlets among the citizens and urged them to not make the city unclean by spitting pan masala and guthka everywhere. They emphasised on the need to keep the city clean and beautiful by throwing garbage and plastic bottles in the dustbins and not on the roads. Placards with slogans about cleanliness and hygiene were used to spread the word.

When asked about the condition of garbage disposal in the city, one of the daily wage municipality workers expressed, “I collect garbage every day from 6AM to 1PM but the amount of garbage just doesn’t seem to lessen. I’m here to request all residents of the city especially the bus and cab drivers to stop spreading litter.” This awareness drive was a part of the ‘I Love Guwahati’ campaign which the GMC had launched with the intention to create awareness in the city on the importance of cleanliness and hygiene. These awareness drives are one of the steps that GMC has taken to promote and propagate the idea of ‘Swachhata’ (cleanliness) in the city. Monalisa Goswami said, “Our workers take a lot of effort to clean the city every morning. Yet, within minutes, the city again gets filled with garbage.”
