Mormugao Port displays missionary zeal to achieve ‘Swachhta Abhityan’ objectives

In a bid to passionately promote Prime Minister’s pet country-wide cleanliness mission ‘Swachhta Abhiyan’ at the port campus, the Mormugao Port Administration is making all out efforts to achieve optimum results of the ‘Swachhta Abhiyan’ that was inaugurated in the port on 15th September 2017. A team of officers of the Port are personally supervising the cleanliness drive at every location. Despite the incessant rains and inclement weather, the enthusiasm exhibited by the staff and employees in carrying out the cleanliness mission is simply commendable.   The Officers, staff and employees of the port are vigorously pursuing the   cleanliness drive program as per the given schedule, says a release from Mormugao Port.

 On 16th all the departments of the port were engaged in weeding out old records and cleaning the office premises. Each department representative is given the responsibility to oversee that the scheduled program of cleanliness in their respective department is carried out faithfully. The old records are being systematically arranged and disposed.

The cleanliness drive was also undertaken on Sunday, and 5 employees each from every department are engaged every day to carry out the cleanliness drive as per the locations identified for the cleanliness work.  The long and winding Sea view road in the vicinity of the Port administrative building was cleared of all filth and garbage lying around by the port employees on 18thSeptember giving the place a new look.  This road is being used by the residents of the area and is vulnerable for getting littered with dirt. 

19th September 2017, was a day of challenge to the port staff and employees who were engaged in the cleanliness drive. They undertook the cleaning of a rain water drain that was clogged with undesired garbage and plastic which runs from the neighbouring residential settlement area, at Headland Sada, Mormugao,  and through the Port residential complex.  The drain was successfully cleaned of all garbage and litter thereby restoring free flow of rain water ensuring no further stagnation of water flow. Later the group undertook the cleanliness of the Bus stop shelters provided in and around the MPT residential complex, restoring the shelters as well as the entire area around the bus top clean.  The Port team will undertake painting of the bus stop shelters during the campaign period.

The ‘Swachchta Abhiyan’ is progressing as planned  and is picking up steam every passing day. The port employees are showing exemplary commitment in making the mission a success.
