Safaigiri Award to Sulabh

article

It was not long back when Assi Ghat on the banks of the

Ganga was one of the dirtiest public spaces in Varanasi. Mounds of mud covered major portions of this 400-metre stretch, and its stairs leading to the water were covered with silt, it resembled a garbage dump, but the ghat was brought back to its original lore in justw three months through a massive cleanliness drive led by Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, founder Sulabh Sanitaton and Reform movement. The dramatic transformation of the Assi Ghat wasn’t going to be an easy task. Sulabh employed more than a hundred labourers, who worked round-the-clock to dig out the original ghat from under the debris using spades and shovels.This cleanliness drive cost Rs 70 lakh and now Sulabh is planning to make it green by planting 500 trees. Well, the safaigiri drive of Sulabh is not stopped here;it has already taken responsibility of 5 other ghats in the city. The pic above shows USHA CHAUMAR, the Honorary President of Sulabh International received the Safaigiri Award for Cleanest Ghat from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
