While opining that that the achievement was made possible due to active and voluntary participation of about 40 local clubs of the district, he urged the people to continue the noble deeds even beyond the campaign timeline.

Speaking on the occasion, DC Bikram maintained that Bishnupur needs to create good impressions on cleanliness as the district attracts a lot of tourists and VIPs.
