Raipur: A cleanliness drive will be
launched in six major cities of Chhattisgarh, official sources
said on Wednesday.
The cities to be covered under the Centre-sponsored
campaign are Raipur, Bilaspur, Bhilai, Durg, Rajnandgaon and
Korba. Two agencies have been chosen to prepare the roadmap to
implement the scheme, they said.
While German Technical Corp will prepare the plan for
the state capital Raipur, Lucknow-based Regional Centre for
Urban and Environmental Studies will do the same for five
other cities, the sources said.
The Union Government earlier this month released a
list based on cleanliness ratings of 471 towns and cities.
Cities from Chhattisgarh were placed lowly on the list.
The cleanliness drive will be preceded by a survey to
understand the ground reality in the six cities by involving
local people and experts, the officials said.
People will be roped in the drive and they will also
be sensitised on need for maintaining a clean surrounding,
