MSME Minister Giriraj Singh distributes Swachhata Awards

Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Giriraj Singh distributed Swachhata Awards in New Delhi yesterday at the end of Swachhata Pakhwada.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Singh said Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan started by the Prime Minister in 2014 on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi is changing the world’s perception about India.

He said awareness is being created amongst MSMEs about the importance of setting up of effluent treatment plants and adopting waste management techniques. He said this is one such initiative to create a healthy competition amongst industrial clusters and estates and offices for Swachhata.

Our correspondent reports that for the first time, Swachhata Pakhwada was organised by the Ministry with grandeur through its field offices and organisations spreading across the country.

Awareness campaigns and seminars on new and innovative technologies on cleanliness were organised. School children were also associated in activities like tree plantation, painting competition, essay and slogan writing competition.
