The devotees and visitors coming to Tiruvannamalai town during the forthcoming Karthigai Deepam have been urged to keep the town clean.

In a release here, Collector A Gnanasekaran said devotees should avoid eating unclean food items kept and sold in the open. They should drink water provided by the municipality and avoid water in plastic sachets.

The devotees have been advised to use garbage bins, which would be placed across the town, to dispose food remains and other waste. The devotees have been urged to use public toilets provided by the municipality and avoid urinating or spitting on roadsides.

Special medical teams would be stationed at several places to tend to medical emergencies faced by the general public and others.

Further Collector Gnanasekaran also urged vendors and other traders to sell quality food items. Health officials would be inspecting the town and if they come across unsafe or adulterated food, the same would be seize and destroyed, the release said.

All the hotels should supply only protected drinking water to customers. The eateries and hotels should keep their premises, especially the kitchen, clean and tidy.

Only those members who are free from diseases should be allowed to cook in the kitchen of a hotel.

Sale of banned tobacco products such as beedi, cigarette, pan parag and gutka would attract severe action against the vendors, the release added.
