HYDERABAD: An estimated one lakh personnel across the South Central Railway (SCR) zone today joined hands in a massive special cleanliness campaign launched as part of the `Swachh Bharat Mission'.
Railway officers, staff across all levels and their family members participated in `Maha Shramdaan' (grand contribution in form of work) at around 680 stations, in trains, tracks, workshops, housing colonies and rail facilities under the SCR.
SCR General Manager P K Srivastava kick-started the campaign by administering cleanliness oath to all the staff working in the Zonal Headquarters at Rail Nilayam here.
He monitored the progress of the campaign from the headquarters here through live data feed from 450 CCTV e cameras installed at 32 major stations. SCR accords a high priority to cleanliness.
Railway premises should always be kept tidy for providing a pleasant travel experience to passengers, he said.
"Cleanliness drive should not be limited to only for a certain duration. Instead, it should be continued as a sustained campaign," he said.
