Many volunteers participated in the Shramadan from 7:30 am to 10:00 am on 22nd July. They cleaned the area around Marnamikatta Railway Bridge, concrete bin and surrounding areas. They removed the cement dustbin and the unused small shop lying next to it. The land was levelled using JCB and flower saplings were placed in pots in the area to prevent people from littering the spot.
