Sujatha Gupta, chief executive officer, SCB, said, “The mission of the cleanliness drive would comprise a collective and sustained effort to clean our homes, work places, streets, roads, pavements, schools, hospitals, markets and all other public places within our purview and keeping them clean and tidy.”

She added that the ‘Clean India - Clean Cantonments’ campaign cannot be successful without public participation and their active co-operation. Sanitation staff and the respective heads will personally monitor all the eight wards in the SCB.

Ch Malla Reddy, MP, who was the chief guest of the event, said, “Under the dynamic leadership of Sujatha Gupta, I am sure that the SCB would definitely achieve the desired results in the ‘Swachh Bharat’ campaign.”

The Malkajgiri MP said that he was ready to give Rs 1 crore from the MPLADS funds to the SCB every year for various development activities in particular reference to civic issues. He appealed the cantonment authorities to use modern methods and equipments for cleaning instead of manual work undertaken by the existing sanitation staff.

Malla Reddy noted that as a member of the Defence Committee in Delhi, he was taking all efforts to recover the whooping dues of Rs 350 crore defaulted by the defence ministry to the SCB for over 11 years.
