Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 24 (IANS) Kerala Governor P. Sathasivam on Wednesday held meetings with people from various walks of life with regards to Swachh Bharat Mission activities in the state.
He invited leaders from private and public entities and also religious leaders, who extended full support for the programme.
Praising the state where 97 percent households have toilets, Sathasivam pointed out that even though Kerala could begin many innovative initiatives under solid and liquid waste management sector, its achievements were yet to show an impact at the grass-roots level.
He urged the business community to come up with financial and other support for constructing more toilet in the state in areas like Attappady, Kuttanada, coastal belt and scheduled tribes and schedule castes hamlets, which demanded higher investment.
Sathasivam also asked the leaders in business and religious fields to put forth their suggestions and mode of involvement in writing to the state government agencies.
