Noida: The residents of Lotus Panache, Sector 110, Noida, and 7x Welfare team came out on streets for a cleanliness drive on Saturday. The drive was started in the morning and was largely participated by local residents including some senior citizens and war veterans like Wing Commander B S Bakshi.
The residents covered the stretch along Lotus Panache on Janpath Road which started from ATS One Hamlet all the way to Noida Commissioner office. The residents collected roughly 150 kg of waste which included organic and inorganic waste.
Dr Pranab from Global Foundation, who has been coordinating this drive at Lotus Panache, said, “The youngest participant in this drive was just about 8 years old and her name is Roohani. She was excited to be a part of this cleanliness drive today and picked up quite a lot of garbage from the road. I feel that maintaining cleanliness is our moral duty and obligation to the society and environment.”
Sumit Dubey, who is part of the 7x welfare team expressed his satisfaction to see large participation of residents in this drive. Sangita Singh, a resident of Lotus Panache, said, “It would be really nice to see more participation of ladies and kids in the future drives.”
“The drive was organised as part of the larger 3-day long 'Clean Noida' drive which was spearheaded by World Class Noida, a citizen movement along with Nav Urja Yuva Sansthan,” said Dr Pranab.
