VISAKHAPATNAM: To create awareness among rail users to strictly observe cleanliness in and around the railway platforms and also inside the trains, a mass cleanliness drive was conducted at Visakhapatnam railway station Sunday. Waltair divisional railway manager and East Coast Railway Scouts and Guides president Anil Kumar flagged off a rally at the DRM’s office which culminated at the railway station.

Speaking on the occasion, he urged the rail users to use dustbins on the platforms and at all mass contact areas. As part of the drive, the passengers are being urged to use dustbins and keep the railway stations and trains clean. Awareness is being created against usage of lavatories in trains when the trains are stationed on the platforms, and not to leave food materials or used casseroles near the seats in the coaches. The DRM appealed to the public to treat the station premises and coaches as their home.

Additional DRM Madanlal Meena, senior personnel officer and district commissioner of Scouts KSN Raju, divisional officers and the members of ‘PREM” (Participation of Railway Employees in Management), along with about 300 Scouts and Guides cadets from various units and employees,  participated in the rally by displaying placards and raising slogans on cleanliness. They also distributed pamphlets to rail-users on platforms and in the trains.
