After students and councillors, it was the turn of television stars to pitch in for the weekly K.R. Market cleaning drive.

On Monday, small screen actors wielded brooms and set about cleaning the market, but not before urging traders to dispose of waste only at designated places. According to a press release, nearly 35 television stars, including Ramesh Pandit, Sunil Puranik, Ratnamala, Pushpa, Anuradha, Sparsha, Hamsaraj, Narayanaswamy and Gururaj, participated.

President of the Television Stars’ Association Sanjiv Tagadooru reminisced about his childhood when he would accompany his family to the market for shopping.

“We used to come here to shop and return happy. However, these days, the situation has changed. We must restore the market to its earlier glory,” he said and urged the traders at the market to join hands with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike in maintaining the market and its surroundings clean. Mayor B.S. Sathyanarayana pointed out that the market clean-up drive had been taken up for the seventh consecutive Monday.

He claimed several programmes for the market’s development were in the anvil, including a separate garbage collection package.
