Swachh Bharat Mission - Projects in Progress

Date : 5th April, 2015


To inculcate cleaning habits in our children and motivate the neighbours, today, first, we swept our residential road and stairs.  When the ladies, neighbours and children came out of the homes and started to clean the locality, we drove to ISBT, Anand Vihar.           


At ISBT, Anand Vihar, in order to expand the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, today we chosen for cleaning the UP Roadways Bus Driver-Conductor Resting Site inside the ISBT.


The condition of this site was extremely bad.  There was no light in that site.  The doors of the bathrooms, toilets & resting rooms were broken and could not be closed.  The two toilets were completely chocked and filled with potty. The water taps of bathrooms & toilets were either broken or were missing.  Further, the two bathrooms were filled in with garbage/mud, plastic water bottles, water was flowing all over and even the floor was invisible.  Similarly, in the two rest rooms, there was dense dust and dirty cloths as well as malba was lying in the corners.


It will not be out of context to mention here that, this site was visited earlier also by our team on 28th December, 2014 and 4th January, 2015 and the concerned UP Roadways officials, available at ISBT, were requested to look into the matter. But despite that the site was in so bad condition.


When we requested the available karmcharies/drivers/conductors to cooperate with us in cleaning the resting site, they were unwilling, the reason, as informed, was the non-action by the concerned authorities/officers for getting cleaned the site despite repeated requests.  As our main aim is to motivate the persons by cleaning the dust/garbage by ourself, rather than forcing them for the result, we did not uttered even a single word further to them in this regard.  To exemplify, within one and half hour we cleaned the whole area.  The pictures, given below, speak the ‘Before, During and After’ scenario of our activities.  Ultimately, we are glad to state that the karmcharies/drivers/ conductors, who were earlier unwilling to cooperate with us, got impressed with our workings and told us that they will also make efforts in cleaning the site.
