Volunteers cleaned the heaps of garbage lying around Nagori Bus stand for years together. Weeds and grass on the nearby roads and footpaths were removed using grass cutting machines. An open drainage line which was a nuisance and posed danger to pedestrians was closed using stone slabs.

Abhiyan volunteers also cleaned two bus shelters, removed the posters stuck on the walls and painted the bus shelters, thus giving them a much needed face lift.

The path leading to Sai Mandir at Nagori was occupied by stone slabs and construction debris and was obstructing the way, posing major hurdle to devotees and pedestrians frequenting Sai Mandir. Volunteers removed the slabs and debris using a JCB excavator and cleared the path.

Three direction boards including the main board mentioning the location of “Nagori” had faded away and were no longer serving their purpose. They were cleaned and repainted.

  1. Great job by Raamakrishna ashrama guys!! See how those store owners did nothing about all the garbage and filth that was right in front of those shops!! The negative attitude of ‘yenk daaye maraaaya’ is the main reason why we continue to be a third-world nation!!

    • Original R. Pai – See how those store owners did nothing about all the garbage and filth that was right in front of those shops!! The negative attitude of ‘yenk daaye maraaaya’ is the main reason why we continue to be a third-world nation!!

      RSS Paimaam is now talking about garbage, ashram, ISIS, Europe, Africa, etc, etc.

      He has totally shut up his mouth regarding development, price rise, make in India, bringing back corrupt money, Ayodhya, Uniform Civil Code, daily killing of Indian Jawans by terrorists across Indo-Pak boarder, “Kapala Moksha” in Bihar and Gujrat, Ajirna pills, etc, etc.

      FOR THOSE WHO WERE UNDER THE NOTION THAT HE HAS GENUINE CONCERN FOR DEMOCRACY AND INDIA, UNBELIEVABLE METAMORPHOSIS IN RSS PAIMAAM.

      WHAT A LETDOWN. AN ABYSMAL FALL FROM HIS MAKE BELIEVE HIGH PEDESTAL!

    Sir, Private organisation is cleaning the city corporation. Modi is collecting the ‘Kachra tax’ to offset the budget deficit.

    Whereas all those Modi’s Bhaktha appeared in ‘Selfie with jaddu’ are now taken up free moral police and vigilance to attack cow carrying trucks.

    Did anyone last seen our local MP after that protest behind saffron outfits for compensation?

    Sab ka saath,sabka vikas?

  3. This how the Mangalore corporation should work. The should form a special team ,Take up one area at a time , clean it thouroughly as done in this case. Within one year entire Mangalore can be spursed up.
