PM says will be involved in cleanup drive
KATHMANDU: Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai has expressed his willingness to be involved in waste management Speaking in a programme organized to give out information on the National Volunteering Campaign at the National Planning Commission Secretariat at Singha Durbar on Saturday, he said he would personally take part in cleaning the Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers and urge the general public to join in the clean-up campaign.
“It is merely false if anyone is of the thinking that the clean-up campaign is undertaken only at the people’s level. I will be personally involved in it and will also enlist the participation of other government ministers and officials,” he said.
Stating that the National Volunteering Campaign has been brought with the objective of inspiring the people towards national development with a feeling of volunteerism, Prime Minister Bhattarai called on all the people to be involved in developing the country.
He said the youths, students and distinguished persons of society would be leading the volunteering campaign.
Noting that the most powerful power is the people’s power, the prime minister expressed the conviction that the door to prosperity could be opened by properly mobilizing this power.
Prime Minister Bhattarai also begged for patience, saying the national campaign could also entail some challenges too.
“It is our collective responsibility to clean up the Bagmati and Bishnumati rivers as these rivers are also a part of the Nepali civilization,” the prime minister pleaded. RSS
