The Delhi Police on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi organised "plog run" in association with NGO United Way Delhi at Golden Jubilee Park in national Capital.

Delhi Lieutenant Governor (L-G), Anil Baijal in presence of Delhi Police Commissioner, Amulya Patnaik flagged off the run on Wednesday morning.

"The plogging drive was organized to spread awareness about plastic waste awareness, management and eliminating 'Single Use Plastic' to keep the city clean and green. Around 400 volunteers, including students from Delhi University and representatives from Resident Welfare Associtaions (RWAs) took part in the activity along with police personnel," said Monika Bharadwaj, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), North district.

"Plogging is a combination of walking and jogging and picking up litter scattered while at it. The trash collected by the ploggers during the event was collected by garbage recyclers and it will further be segregated and recycled into something useful," said the DCP.

L-G also administered the oath to participants to eliminate single use plastic, segregate the waste and to motivate others to keep the city clean and green.
