Sanitation workers of the Bhopal Memorial Hospital and Research Centre (BMHRC) on Monday were honored under the Swachhta Hi Seva Fortnight and on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
A cultural program was also organised, in which the students of the nursing college also staged a dance drama to convey the message given by Gandhiji regarding cleanliness. Along with this, the students also presented Gandhiji's two favorite bhajans by singing 'Vaishnav Jan Te Tene Kahiye' and 'Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram.'
BMHRC Director Dr. Manisha Srivastava while addressing the sanitation workers of BMHRC said that We are not only honoring you for the show, but we respect you from the bottom of our heart. The work you guys are doing, no one else can do it. Dr. Srivastava told the employees that we should have respect for the sanitation workers. We should help them. It should not be the case that we spread garbage irresponsibly and expect the sweepers to keep the entire campus clean.
He said that it is even more important to take care of cleanliness in hospitals, because infected waste comes out of hospitals. If this contaminated waste is not disposed of properly, it can adversely affect the health of the person exposed to it.Director, BMHRC, while remembering Mahatma Gandhi, said that Gandhiji was a great proponent of cleanliness.
He was the first to spread the message of cleanliness among the common people in our country. It is not easy for any other person to do what Gandhiji did for himself. We should take inspiration from Gandhiji and take a pledge to keep not only our house but also outside the house and our office clean.
Intensive cleanliness drive in BMHRC : Earlier on Sunday, an intensive cleanliness drive was carried out in the premises of the entire BMHRC as a part of a call given by the Central Government. BMHRC employees went to different places and cleaned the area. A WhatsApp group was formed to monitor cleanliness at the institute. Any employee will report any litter or litter on the premises and the responsible person will take immediate action.
