At a special programme organised by Green City Hospital on the occasion of 50th week of Ring Road Clean-Up Campaign here today, Chairman Dahal urged all to join hands in this campaign at a time when the country is involved in the mega campaign of nation building.
Similarly, Home Minister Ram Bahadur Thapa ‘Badal’ said that it was necessary to launch a campaign against the waste as it is the enemy of the people.
He said action would be taken against those throwing waste in public vehicles as well as parking vehicles unsystematically.
Likewise, Minister for Forest and Environment, Shakti Bahadur Basnet, said that the constitution has guaranteed the right to live in clean and healthy environment.
He said all should work to build healthy environment, adding the mega campaign should be launched by integrating clean-up campaign of all sectors.

The campaign launched from April 15, 2017 has so far collected more than 750 metric tonnes of waste and more than 25,000 people have participated in it, said campaigner Lok Bahadur Tandon.
