GUWAHATI- As part of Puneet Sagar Abhiyan, cadets and Staff of 60 Assam Girls Battalion NCC Guwahati cleaned the river bank of Brahmaputra at Chandrapur. Such drives will go a long way in increasing awareness about cleanliness.
‘Puneet Sagar Abhiyan’ was started on December 1 by NCC to clean the seashores/beaches off the plastic & other wastes materials. The campaign will increase awareness about the importance of keeping the seashores free from plastic wastes across the country.
According to the Defence ministry, 5.2 lakh NCC cadets from 127 coastal area NCC units have so far collected approximately eight tons of plastic waste. The collected plastic wastes will be handed over to NHAI, which afterwards will be used in road construction.
