New Delhi: In the 93rd episode of his Mann Ki Baat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday praised the Uttar Pradesh government’s campaign titled ‘Kabaad se Jugaad’ which has the objective of beautifying public places in an environment-friendly way.
PM Modi termed Yogi Adityanath’s government’s initiative was an example of protection of the environment and beautification of the city.
“The campaign is also an example of how to beautify public places at a low cost. I appreciate all the people involved in this campaign from the core of my heart,” the PM said during his address.
“Realising the vision of the State Government to beautify the cities, the Meerut Municipal Corporation worked to beautify the city through waste material and disposable items. Since the formation of the Yogi government, there has been a significant improvement in the power supply in Meerut. The Municipal Corporation also resorted to artificial lights to beautify the district,” the PM added.
The Prime Minister further said, “The Municipal Corporation launched a campaign to illuminate Meerut and named it ‘Kabaad Se Jugaad’. The Municipal Commissioner Amit Pal Sharma informed that the campaign is an example of how public places can be beautified at a low cost. The city is being decorated using waste and discarded items such as iron scrap, plastic waste, old tires and drums.”
“Arrangements were made at the circuit house intersection with artificial light trees, barricading from waste wheels of hand carts, mini wheel parks, display walls from old JCB tires, and stool tables for sitting in the parks, among others. Using items at a lower cost, the city was decorated in a beautiful, unique way, presenting a ‘model’ before others,” the PM said further.
"Modi government has eradicated terrorism from the country and AAP's 'namoona' who has come from Delhi is a true benevolent of terrorism," said Yogi referring to Kejriwal while addressing a poll rally in Gir Somnath.
