Swachh Sandhol Campaign kicks off tomorrow



Shimla: Sandhol, since its birth has 275 shops and 300 tenants residing in the vicinity, but till today there isn’t a single dust/garbage bin that the individuals can use. Taking in consideration this state of affairs NGO NHEPES has started an initiative called Swachh Sandhol Campaign, which will kick off tomorrow. After the completion of this campaign, programme on the same lines will be implemented in Jaisinghpur and Dharampur town during 2012.

Like any other initiative, this campaign has also faced various obstacles in its journey till here. According to Coordinator Himachal NHEPES Pradeep Nirala, under this programme, the members of NHEPES approached all government authorities regarding the sanitation issue of rural area through mails. But, except TSC Shimla there was no reply from any other authority. NGO members then took the initiative further by approaching the PRI members,retired persons and other intellectuals. The initiative was appreciated by everyone, but there was a doubt over the implementation. However, against all odds  professionals were arranged. They assured cooperation from all sides and now, Sandhol will see a new chapter in its sanitation on 1st December, 2011.
