In Making Srinagar A Beautiful City, CRPF Starts Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

Published on 30 December, 2015 at 3:06 pm By

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has started Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in Srinagar with the cooperation of Srinagar Municipal Corporation. The campaign aims to promote the spirit of cleanliness among the people in the valley.

Under this programme, 100 CRPF persons with 100 SMC employees will clean religious, historic and tourists places across the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir.

The event was supervised under Harpal Singh, commandant 61 BN CRPF and was inaugurated by Atul Karwal,  IPS,  IG-CRPF (Srinagar sector) in the presence of Syed Abdul Qasim, joint commissioner, Srinagar Municipal Corporation at Shankaracharya temple.

Karwal said that the CRPF is always determined to clean all tourist places of Srinagar which have high religious and historical significance.

He said the jawans are putting in their best efforts for the success of this campaign and have tried to associate school and college students with them.

Qasim appreciated the noble initiative of CRPF and said that this is a commendable act of social responsibility.



He said that he was happy to see that they have taken the task to generate awareness about the cleanliness in the city.

However, he maintained that Srinagar is already clean to larger extent, but this concept of associating public with the dive will help in generating awareness.

The campaign also focuses on engaging the youth for the cleanliness drive.

According to Qasim, every year, many tourists visit the historical places of Kashmir and carry the glorified image of ‘Paradise on Earth.’

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s much-talked-about sanitation programme, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (SBA), is largely unimplemented in J&K, which is partly ruled by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
