Pulwama | Chief Secy J&K Flags Off Garbage Transport Trucks | J&K Villages On A Cleanliness Drive People used to throw garbage on roads or in and around the official property, said a villager in Pulwama. They used to throw in drains and rivers and almost everywhere you could just see garbage. Our homes were clean but the outside environment was dirty. We are fortunate that the Indian government has provided us the garbage transport and machinery to extract plastic waste from mixing in the soil. The Jammu & Kashmir Chief Secretary Arun Kumar Mehta IAS flagged off garbage transport trucks in the presence of Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, Basharat Qayoom IAS. People will be saved from diseases. This is a good step to uplift people to make them move ahead in life. These garbage trucks will pick wet and dry waste and plastic waste. We request people not to throw them in roads, drains and water bodies. Jammu & Kashmir villages have achieved the status of model villages. The Chief Secretary requested the people of Pulwama to keep their villages clean for attracting more tourism. Cleanliness will reduce health problems, the environment stays good and tourism will get a boost. Jammu & Kashmir is on number 1 position in Swachh Bharat Mission. The aim of Swachh Bharat mission should reach every village, said the Chief Secretaery Arun Kumar Mehta.
