Mangaluru, (The Hindu): Volunteers cleaned Lalbagh and nearby areas as part of the 30th Swachata Abhiyan of Ramakrishna Mission here on Sunday.
They cleaned the footpath and the road from opposite to the Mangaluru City Corporation to Mangala stadium. Students of Nitte College of Physiotherapy cleaned the road and footpaths from Sri Ramakrishna Girls’ Hostel and the road leading towards Lady Hill. Big cement concrete slabs, which were posing a problem to pedestrians, on Lalbagh 5th Cross road were removed and the area cleaned.
At the circle in front of Mangaluru City Corporation, the bust of Mahatma Gandhi had been damaged in an accident. Volunteers, taking help from masons, repaired it. The volunteers cleaned both the triangular spots in the area and the bust with water. Both the spots were decorated with flower pots and flower creepers.
Three bus shelters in Lalbagh area were also cleaned. The volunteers painted the direction boards of Officers Club, Lady Hill 5th Cross on the MG Road, and Lady Hill Road.
Some volunteers went around distributing handbills on cleanliness awareness and urged residents to keep their surroundings clean.
