GUWAHATI, June 23 - As per its campaign for a clean, eco-friendly and plastic-free Kamakhya temple campus, NGO Voice of Environment (VoE) today organised a programme in the old jail campus at Fancy Bazar where a large number of devotees for the ongoing Ambubachi Mela are camping.
“We conducted awareness activities among the devotees, visitors and sadhus for a clean and hygienic environment during the festivities. We are organising a mass sensitisation awareness programme supported by the Kamakhya temple authorities on the temple premises and at the camps for the devotees,” an NGO spokesperson said.
The awareness campaign was conducted in the presence of devotees, police officers, village defence personnel, SDRF, DDMA and Kamrup Metro district administration officials. A collaborative roadmap for a clean, eco-friendly and plastic-free zone within the temple premises and the mela camp areas was drawn up for the purpose.
The team interacted with the devotees and visitors during the programme to understand the views of the people from different parts of country regarding the initiative.
The NGO will organise a similar event in the Kamakhya temple campus tomorrow.
