To create awareness for the sanitation of the city, Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) has started painting murals on the walls along Lal Chowk Bund here with a message to keep the city neat and clean.
Commissioner Srinagar Municipal Corporation Shafqat Khan told Kashmir Vision that the aim of painting the walls is to create awareness among the masses.
“We want to tell the people that this is their city and they must keep it clean and green,” Shafqat said.
“The appeal we want to make through these paintings is that people should not litter rubbish on roads, rather use dust bins for it, so that further improvement is made in the sanitation of city,” he said.
“We have assigned this job to the students of Music & Fine Arts, University of Kashmir who will be later paid for their work,” he added.
Pertinently, the project is the part of Swachh Bharat initiative.
