Adar Poonawalla's clean city movement is helping to stay clean during Ganpati celebrations

As the 10-day extravaganza begins in Pune, Adar Poonawalla's clean city movement is helping to stay clean during Ganpati celebrations. The initiative was launched in January this year. The Serum Institute Sayon, which has invested Rs 100 crore in cleaning up Pune, will assist 5 Ganpati pandals in waste management during the festivities.

“I am very proud to be an Indian, but sometimes my pride takes a hit when I spot inequalities such as garbage and waste management issues in the city, said Adar Poonawalla. This led to the birth of the clean city movement with the advice of some consultants.

Speaking exclusivley to Magicbricks NOW, on the clean-up drive, Poonawalla said the initiative has more than 100-members with imported pieces of machinery from Holland, Belgium, and the UK.

Speaking on the inauguration of the eco-friendly toilets for railways, police in Mumbai, he told that it was an extension of the clean city initiative which focused on hygiene, sanitation, and water.

Earlier, on August 2, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated eco-friendly, state-of-the-art toilets for police and railways across the city of Mumbai as part of the Swacch Maharashtra drive.

Claiming it as the first-of-its-kind initiative in India, Poonawalla envisaged his vision in making Pune as a role model in the next 2-3 years.
