Around 250 enthusiastic volunteers divided into groups cleaned the 2 kms beach front as part of the ‘Swachchta Hi Seva’ campaign.

The cleanliness drive was well planned and the team was fully equipped with all the required infra for systematic disposal of the garbage.

Bhavana Nanoskar, and MMC Ward Councilor Sandesh Mesta were also present during the cleanliness drive and they appreciated the initiative of the Port Management in carrying out the cleanliness drive at the Baina Beach. The Chairman (i/c) Shri Rai said that such cleanliness drives as well as awareness programmes among the citizens should be a continuous process and extended support to the MMC Chairperson in their Swachchta initiatives for the Port town.
The locals who watched the cleanliness campaign undertaken by the Mormugao Port Administration in going beyond their call of duty and reaching out to support a social cause and leading by example in keeping the environment clean were impressed with the initiative.
Such cleanliness and awareness drives will continue in the neighbourhood of the Port beyond the Swachchata Campaign period, so as to bring about an awareness and inculcate the habit of cleanliness amongst the citizens of Vasco and achieve the goal of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi of having a clean, green and healthy environment.
