Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a National Campaign, was launched by the Government of India, to clean the streets, roads and infrastructure of the country. The campaign was officially launched on 2nd October, 2014 at Rajghat, New Delhi to mark the 145th birthday anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself cleaned the roads.
As a part of the movement, the Governor of Maharashtra and Chancellor of Maharashtra State Universities Shri C. Vidyasagar appealed to educational institutions to adopt Railway Stations for cleanliness. Local trains being the lifeline of majority of Mumbaikars, cleanliness at Railway Stations is the need of the hour.
We, at Vidyalankar, liked the idea and as a Group of Educational Institutions made a formal request to the Governor of Maharashtra and General Manager (C.R) for adoption of Wadala Railway Station for cleanliness and overall Infrastructure development.
On July 25th 2015 the Vidyalankar Group embarked on this mission.
On 25th July 2015, 100 enthusiastic student volunteers and teachers rallied till Wadala railway station with informative placards to participate in the inaugural of Vidyalankar’s initiative. In addition to this, our students performed a Flash Mob at the Wadala railway station. This launch attracted the enthusiasm and attention of residents and commuters alike.
