Jalandhar : Verinder Singh Virdi
Municipal Corporation Jalandhar started the project of establishing role model in various wards, colonies and institutions of Jalandhar under Swachh Bharat Campaign. Hans Raj Mahila Maha Vidyalaya, Jalandhar became the first role model institution of not only Jalandhar but Punjab by fulfilling all the criteria under Swachh Bharat Mission Urban. Principal Prof. Dr. (Mrs.) Ajay Sareen congratulated all the teaching & non-teaching staff members and the students. She said that this is the result of hard work done by HMV family to make our environment clean.
It is worth mentioning that HMV is actively working under Swachh Bharat Mission from the last 5 years. Under this, the wet & dry waste of the institution is source segregated and treated accordingly. Dr. Anjana Bhatia, Dean Innovation and Research said that earlier all the waste of the college was sent to dump. Even the garden waste was also sent along with other waste. However, now the college prepares fertilizer with the waste. The college also has a project to make fertilizer from leaves also. The garden waste is also mulched within the college. In addition, the college is having various projects to work with Plastic, Wood, Iron, Cardboard, Paper, Clothes & Rubber. She told that all the boards regarding Swachhta Mission placed inside the college are made up of waste material. In this effort thousands of students, their families, 300 faculty members and non-teaching staff members got this message. She said that Safai Karamchari have played a significant role in this project. They are being motivated from time to time. They are given proper training along with mask, sanitizers & other things. Honourable Municipal Commissioner Sh. Karnesh Sharma, IAS, Incharge Dr. Shree & Programme Coordinator Ms. Ramanpreet Kaur provided full cooperation in this project.
