In an effort to create awareness about Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike’s (BBMP) new rule on garbage segregation, which came into force on October 1, a group of students organised an awareness campaign on Sunday.

About 100 students from J P Nagar organised a road show informing residents about simple tips on  waste management along with creating awareness about endosulfan.

“Our road show started from Sarakki near Anjeneya Temple in J P Nagar I Phase and ended at Jayangar 9th Block. We then proceeded towards J P Nagar III Phase, headed towards J P Nagar VI Phase to educate residents on the way,” said Nagendra R, Member of Jaya Karnataka and a social worker from J P Nagar.

S K Natraj, former BBMP mayor and Corporator of J P Nagar, headed the rally along with the students who walked around 15 km across J P Nagar and Jayangar.

“Our aim is to create awareness about garbage management, waste segregation and utilisation in ways that would put an end to the garbage woes of Bangalore,” said Niroop M, a student of Dayananda Sagar college of Engineering.

The students also educated people about ways to help the endosulfan victims who are directly affected by this kind of pollution.
