Clean Ooty campaign begins

D.Radhakrishnan

Udhagamandalam: “This place is ours, let us keep it clean.” To drive home this message among various sections of the society in this hill station, residents of the Melkawhatty village set in motion a cleaning campaign near the Government Headquarters Hospital here on Wednesday.

It involved the removal of wild growth and litter which have over the years become ideal breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

The effort was also carried out in order to create areas suitable for forming gardens and greening the environment.

Pointing out that the volunteers belonged to an outfit called ‘Mannuga Matha' in Badaga meaning ‘Decorating the Earth', which came into being about four months ago, its president N.Nataraj, a retired teacher told The Hindu that their mission is to enhance awareness about the environment.
