cleanliness, and to administer the same to 100 more persons. In these times of

task. Our ports are the first point of landing to any visitor. So we have
a much bigger responsibility towards cleanliness as we are all ambassadors of
our nation. Let us begin with keeping the premises clean, so that it gives the
visitors a good first impression. Let us all devote two hours a week to achieve
the goal of cleanliness’.
