Kohima, Sep. 20 (EMN):
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Kohima, Bhavani Sri called on the citizens to make it the responsibility of every individual to keep the city clean.

She stated this during the launch of car stickers at SKV Petrol Pump in Kohima, an initiative of the Keep Our City Clean (KOCC) mission.

 The official maintained that the people of Northeast were given beautiful landscapes, flora and fauna making it one of the most beautiful places in the country, while stating that everyone should maintain God’s given gifts.

She also commended the initiative to keep the city safe and clean.

 While pointing out the Government’s mooting to organise Hornbill festival later this year depending upon the Covid-19 situation, she urged the citizens of Kohima to maintain and keep that city beautiful as it would not only beautify the city but give a positive impression to visitors when they come.

She further appealed to the citizens to make it their habit in households and wherever they go to adopt and resolve to keep the city clean.

 In a short address, the person behind the KOCC mission, Khriehuzo Lohe, said that ‘Keep our city clean’ was initiated in 2020 and had been undertaking cleanliness drives across the city in various locations. He added that the car sticker aims to convey the message of keeping the city clean and urged the people and car owners to carry forward the message.

 He pointed out that the world was facing a crisis — global warming and climate change among others.

 Earlier, the programme was led by Kikruneinuo Liezietsu and a special song was presented by Bright Morning Star Children’s Home, Kohima.
