TO ensure cleanliness and to improve awareness among youth to keep the Tiruchy city clean, around 1,000 students participated in an event called "Pollution-Free Tiruchy-Hoping For A Change" at the Race Course Road on Saturday. The awareness programme named Maasilla Trichy-Maatram Thedi (Pollution-free Tiruchy-Hoping fora change) was presided by district collector K Rajamani and jointly organised by Tiruchy City Corporation and YUGAA, a women's welfare association. Student participants from Rotaract Club, NSS and other dubs of various city colleges graced the event through their active contribution by cleaning the streets and removing plastic waste. As a part of the programme, the participants and organisers cleaned the Race Course Road and spread awareness among locals about the need for making plastic-free zones.

Speaking on the occasion, Allirani Balaji, President of YUGAA said, 'This is solely based on the idea of cleanliness and hygiene among the individuals which can be transferred to the society Active participants of these youngsters motivate us to involve and come up with more such initiatives in the future." As the citizen feedback as a part of Swachh Survey 2018 would focus on the familiarity of Swachhata android application for receiving and addressing grievances pertaining to public hygiene, volunteers participating in the Clean Tiruchy event promoted the usage of the application to report grievances on public hygiene. Tiruchy Corporation also planned to reach out to more college students to promote the official Swachhata Application.
