Dibrugarh: As part of the Swachh Bharat Mission (Rural), an awareness meeting for the College Health and Sanitation Clubs (CHSC) of the district was held under the auspices of the Dibrugarh District Drinking Water and Sanitation Committee (DDDWSC) at DHSK College on Saturday. The meeting, which was kept in order to urge the members of CHSC to act, witnessed the participation of 27 such clubs from different colleges across the district.

Addressing the gathering, DC Laya Madduri lauded the contribution of Dibrugarh University (DU) in the direction of sanitation, and informed that after DU had signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the district administration and DDDWSC in 2015, the university had made handy contribution towards turning many villages and tea gardens of the district open defecation free.

Madduri also observed that the scope of Swachh Bharat Mission was not just confined to building scientific toilets to make the district open defecation free, and therefore, equal attention must be paid in keeping the surroundings clean, and finding scientific ways of waste management. The meeting was graced many other dignitaries, including Vice-Chancellor of DU, Dr. Ranjit Tamuli; Director of CDC, DU, Rupam Saikia and Executive Engineer of Public Health Engineering, Bhaskarjyoti Sharma.
