Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Tuesday urged the people of the State to make the Clean, Green and Fit Village campaign successful so that Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of a clean and green India could be realised in its true spirit. He inaugurated campaign initiated by MyGov Assam at Judges’ Field in Guwahati.
It may be mentioned here that the concept of Fit Village has been newly introduced where the children from the villages are encouraged to play volleyball and stay fit. 115 villages in the state have been selected for the campaign.
The ONGC would provide 115 volleyballs with nets, 100 jute bags and 5 bamboo dustbins per village where the single-use plastic would be kept. The youth apart from playing volleyball would also take part in picking up single-use plastic items in their villages which would be later collected and sent for recycling.
