Environment protection drive summits under Surya Command
LUCKNOW: As part of PM’s call towards Swachh Bharat Mission, Surya Command is participating in the national cause towards creating awareness on environmental protection and cleanliness in the spirit of ‘Jan Andolan’ from Sunday to October 2.
Surya Command will be flagging off special teams from remote forward locations in Uttarakhand on Sunday. The teams will contact veterans and local villagers in the remote mountainous areas and spread awareness about environment degradation and actions needed towards preservation of the natural wonders of Uttarakhand.
A cleanliness drive along routes leading to important religious shrines of Kedarnath, Badrinath, Kailash Mansarovar, Hemkund Sahib will be undertaken by mobilising and motivating local villagers and tourists by these teams.
In addition, special patrols would undertake environmental protection and cleansing activity in the high altitude areas of Gangotri, Yamnotri, Pindari Glacier and Mount Kamet Base to restore these areas to their pristine beauty by removing pollutants left over by previous mountaineering expeditions.
