MC Yaripora organises seminar-cum-painting competition

KULGAM: A day-long seminar-cum-painting competition was organised on Wednesday by Municipal Committee (MC) Yaripora in collaboration with the Education Department here at Government Middle School Yaripora. The programme, organised under the Swachh Bharat Mission-Swachh J&K, was based on the topic ‘Cleanliness is my Right, Cleanliness is my responsibility’.
Scores of students from various government and private institutions participated in the programme and threw light upon the topic and highlighted the significance of cleanliness and the responsibilities of people to keep the environment clean and clear. The students also highlighted various issues which are a threat to the environment globally. Speaking on the occasion, Tehsildar Yaripora Abid Gani Wani, who was the chief guest, said that cleanliness is not the responsibility of only a few people but it is a collective social responsibility. He appealed to people to join hands with the administration to make the district pollution free.
While applauding the Municipal Committee Yaripora for organising such sensitization programme, he urged the authorities to organise such sensitization programmes on a regular basis to make the people more environmentally conscious.
