New Delhi: The Jamia Millia Islamia has launched the ‘Swachchata Abhiyan’ (Cleanliness Campaign) with a vow by the students to make the Jamia a plastic and litter free zone. Vice Chancellor Prof. Talat Ahmed inaugurated the programme on September 22 from the Department of Educational Studies and Department of Teacher Training and Non-Formal Education (IASE) with the latter launching the NSS camp to mark the occasion. The Faculty of Education came into existence as the first National Laboratory of Basic Education consequent upon the resolution made in Wardha by Mahatma Gandhi to link Education with the world of work.
The Abhiyan was launched in response to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to clean up the country and make it an attractive destination for international tourists. The Registrar, JMI in his address put the emphasis on making campus litter free and for this all concerned should consider it as their collective responsibility to pick up the wrappers and litter only to be put into the bin. He asked the students to take a pledge for the same. In the inaugural function, Jamia Tarana, the NSS song and Swachhata Geet were sung by a group of students.
