Inspired by the Hon'ble Prime ministers call for 'Swachh Bharat' as mass movement to realize Gandhiji's dream of clean India by the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi in 2019 and with a motto to promote cleanliness as a mantra in daily life, ITCSA officers working various parts of the country have initiated a programme to create awareness on cleanliness at public places. About 30 Civil Servants from various Central/state services and their family members/friends including Sadhu Narasimha Reddy IRS(Goa), Dasari Balaiah IRS, K.Rajeshrama Rao IRS(Pune), Shanti sudha IRS (Pune),Ramana Reddy IRPS,Ravi Kumar DEO,Rajagopal DTO, Naga Munaiah SO etc. have become part of this initiative on 08-11-2014 and took up the challenge of cleaning the famous but much neglected NTR stadium at Domalguda, Hyderabad. The programme was started at 6.30 am by giving Rose flowers to the morning walkers and sports persons at the stadium to sensitize them and to invite them to participate in the cleaning of the stadium. Assisted by about 20 morning walkers and sports persons at the stadium, the civil servants group has successfully cleaned about 5 acres of the open stadium in 2 hours time. The volunteers ranged from 5yrs old to 75 yrs old freedom fighter and software engineers to civil service aspirants.This programme has received much appreciation from the local community and media.
