Ludhiana: With an aim to improve ranking in Swachh Survekshan 2021 and beautify the city, the Municipal Corporation (MC) Ludhiana, kicked off a “Clean Ludhiana, Green Ludhiana” campaign. The campaign was started from Bus Stand by Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu and MC Commissioner Pardeep Sabharwal on Saturday.
Addressing a press conference on Sunday, Mayor Balkar Singh, who was accompanied by Councillor Mamta Ashu said that it is the duty of the Municipal Corporation to clean and beautify the city but it could not happen without the cooperation of the public. “The entire MC team from MC Commissioner to every single employee has been doing all the efforts to beautify the city. I also solicit cooperation from Ludhiana residents to support this campaign,” he said.
He said that if Indore can secure India’s cleanest city tag the why can’t Ludhiana. “We will send a team of councillor’s to Indore for comparison and to ascertain that where we are lacking,” he said.
