Audit week celebrations: Massive cleanliness drive carried out on Sangam banks
Cleaning of the banks was done by sweeping the banks of the Ganga by the officials and the garbage was disposed of through garbage collection vehicles provided by the Prayagraj Municipal Corporation.
Continuing with its week-long celebrations to mark ‘Audit Week’, which commenced on November 16, the Indian Audit and Accounts Department (IAAD) undertook a massive cleanliness drive on the banks of Sangam, on Tuesday.
The department is carrying out a number of events and awareness programmes in a phased manner while celebrating the “Audit Week” which is being organised under the aegis of the office of the Principal Accountant General (PAG) Audit-1, Prayagraj.
The cleanliness campaign at Sangam area was inaugurated by Principal Accountant General Vijay Kumar Mohanty.
While joining a huge team of volunteers comprising the staff and officers along with their family members of the department, Mohanty gave an awareness message to the people present on the Sangam bank regarding cleanliness and also encouraged the cleanliness of river Ganga. He described the Ganga as India’s heritage and ‘sanjivani’.
Mohanty also said that cleanliness is not a week or a fortnight programme but a continuous process, for which the audit and accounts department has tried to make people aware of its importance in its office and outside.
“All of us, employees and officers along with our home, family, neighbourhood need to be aware to keep our national heritage Ganga and Yamuna as well as other heritage rivers clean,” said Mohanty.
The programme was attended by senior deputy accountant general (administration) Sanjeev Kumar from audit office along with deputy accountants general Avnindra Rai, Shreyansh Singh, Sahil Sangwan and officers and employees of the office.
Cleaning of the banks was done by sweeping the banks of the Ganga by the officials and the garbage was disposed of through garbage collection vehicles provided by the Prayagraj Municipal Corporation. Under the cleanliness campaign, a special drive is being run by the participating offices outside their respective office premises during the week-long events.
In this sequence, an inter-office quiz competition of the offices of the department will be organised at the North-Central Zone Cultural Center (NCZCC), Prayagraj on November 23.
