BANGALORE: The Swachh Bharat campaign will not serve its purpose without public co-operation, opined Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) authorities, elected representatives and experts.

“When one sweeps and cleans their house, will they make that place untidy again? One has the common sense that they should maintain cleanliness after cleaning their room or house. The same attitude should be present among the public and they should keep their roads and locality clean,” Mayor Shantha Kumari told Express. “When pourakarmikas sweep the street, one should not litter it. The Swachh Bharat campaign needs public cooperation,” she said. “Why should one feel ashamed to participate in this drive,” she said.

“We have asked all BBMP officials to work on Gandhi Jayanti and participate in this drive” she added.

District Minister Ramalinga Reddy said there are more than one crore people residing in Bangalore and all should join hands in keeping the city clean.

“One cannot stop generating waste at their houses or office. But it is their duty to keep waste at their house till pourakarmikas come to their door step to collect it. People should stop littering, urinating and spitting at public places,” said Minister Reddy.
