In keeping with the Swachh Bharat Mission to heart, residents of Vinayagampet in Mannadipet Commune launched a cleanliness and tree plantation drive on Tuesday led by the M. S. Swaminathan Research Foundation.

Commissioner Arumugam inaugurated the programme with a collective pledge. Villagers, farmer groups, NSS volunteers from Dr. S.J.S. Paul Memorial College of Engineering and Technology and the Innuyir Grama Sangam (MSSRF’s women federation) cleaned the main roads and bylanes. The Forest Department helped in plantating 250 trees.

The government provided garbage bins and residents were sensitised on cleanliness by not littering and washing hands. Awareness was created about degradable and non-degradable substances.
