In Saidabad, SBH Colony around 150 members from children to senior citizens, of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, participated in the DC Clean Drive campaign and cleaned up.
“It took four hours for us to clean the public place. We preferred early hours and started at 6.30 am and ended by around 10.30 am. The chosen area was a park and a community hall of SBH Colony. This site was selected through a survey conducted by the committee; since many visitors come there for walks and it is also a play area for children. It was essential for the surrounding to be clean,” said Musavir Ahmed, a member of the community.
They used six rickshaws and two municipal trucks to transport the waste and they cleaned up huge pile of mud which has been there for years ago. The committee members were funded for required equipments.
Another participate Zaheer Uddin added “This is not our first endeavour for cleanliness. We had organised similar programmes earlier at Fever Hospital, Osmania, Niloufer and Koti Maternity Hospitals. Our next location for the clean-up drive would be decided by the committee president. We will continue to participate in this campaign and encourage citizens to participate and make the city clean. We thank Deccan Chronicle for this initiative”.
