A total of 52 Alva’s NCC Air Wing cadets and 01 ANO attended the event. The ANO briefed about Swaccha Bharat Abhiyan and asked the cadets to take keen interest in cleanliness drive as a national interest and emphasized the responsibilities of the cadets towards changing the mind-sets of the people regarding the cleanliness issues in the country. Thereafter cadets organized themselves into two teams and launched the cleanliness drive throughout the beach and its surroundings. The cadets collected more than 40 bags of waste which included plastic waste, foot wears, glass bottles, degradable items, polyester, etc. All the waste were separately collected in the black bags. The tourism department had taken responsibility of collecting these garbage bans from beach and to dispose it.
