State BJP women wing launches cleanliness drive
Kohima, Sep. 18 (EMN): Continuing the Seva Saptah (service week) to commemorate the 70th birth anniversary of the prime minister, Narendra Modi, the state unit of Bharatiya Janata Mahila Morcha (BJMM) has initiated a state-wide village cleanliness drive at Mission Compound in Kohima village, which was launched by MLA of Northern Angami-I Khriehu Liezietsu on September 18.
Addressing the participants about the cleanliness drive, Liezietsu acknowledged the state BJP Mahila Morcha for organising the programme in Kohima village. He also appreciated the initiative for cleaning of villages under the Seva Saptah.
Liezietsu maintained that, irrespective of political party, one should learn to ‘appreciate each other, come together and work together for the development and benefit of the people and the state’ when someone is doing good for the people.
Also speaking during the brief programme, state BJP president and minister of Higher and Technical Education and Tribal Affairs, Temjen Imna Along, stated that the party, during the service week, had chosen different approaches to contribute to the society ‘in our own little ways’.
Along insisted that cleanliness should start from one’s own home, own village and colony. He also appealed to the people to endeavour for a better environment, live a hygienic life, and keep homes and surroundings clean.
Along advised the people to ‘be wary of single use plastics’ and to make continuous efforts to keep the surrounding clean so that Kohima and the state as a whole could be clean and lead a healthier life.
Meanwhile, the state BJMM president, Phangnon Konyak, informed that Friday’s event was a cleanliness drive that would be extensively carried out state-wide.
Later, Liezietsu officially launched the cleanliness drive in the presence of Imna Along and a host of party officials and volunteers. The participants cleaned the Mission Compound area during the programme.
