Rope in school kids for Swachh Bharat: Goa governor

Panaji, Feb 20 (IANS) Goa Governor Mridula Sinha, who is a Swachh Bharat ambassador appointed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Saturday said students should shoulder the responsibility of cleaning 2-3 households in their neighbourhood.

“Every student could be urged to shoulder the responsibility of 2-3 households in his/her neighbourhood,” Sinha said at a public function in Margao town, 35 km from Panaji.

Sinha, who unveiled the ‘Clean Margao Mission’ on Saturday, also appealed to teachers to imbibe the importance of cleaning up homes and surroundings at a tender age.

“Swachh Bharat Abhiyan should go hand-in-hand alongside developmental issues and should not be treated merely as a cleanliness matter,” she said, adding that her dream was to ensure that Goa ranks first in the Swachh Bharat Mission, a pet project of Modi.
