Indian Coast Guard conducted a massive Beach Clean-Up drive at various beaches in A&N Islands including Carbyn’s Cove beach at Port Blair, Karmatang Beach at Mayabunder, Kalapathar Beach at Hut Bay and Campbell Bay on Saturday under the government’s “Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan”. The service has been effectively contributing not only towards the Prime Minister’s visionary step of Clean India Campaign but also has taken steps towards 'Swachh Sagar Abbiyaan' wherein measures have been put in place for keeping our oceans clean.
The event was conducted by Coast Guard personnel wherein approximately garbage including discarded plastic items, ropes, nets, clothes etc were collected from all the beaches and handed over to concerned civil administration for disposal. The event was witnessed and applauded by the locals and they also extended helping hand towards cleaning the area. During the drive the banner was also displayed to sensitise the locals not to pollute the pristine beaches of the islands. Indian Coast Guard had been instrumental in generating awareness amongst local populace regarding the importance of clean shores. The event was a great success and the beach looked cleaner on completion of the drive.
