Jagran Correspondent, Naya Gurugram: Sourav Ganguly, former captain of the Indian cricket team and brand ambassador of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, was in Gurugram on Wednesday. Ganguly, who came as a chief guest in the Solid Waste Management program 'Alag Karo, Everyday Teen Bin', launched by Sahas Ki, a non-profit organization, said that I have been actively involved in the cleanliness drive for the last three years. I go to various programs, especially whenever I go to school or college, I am amazed to see the enthusiasm of students towards cleanliness. Today's children are aware of cleanliness. They are also aware of cleanliness not only in schools, colleges but also in the house and surroundings. A lot can be learned from children.

Former captain Ganguly said that the role of partnership is very important in every field. Whether it is about cricket or a good cleanliness campaign, we are successful. On this occasion, Sourav said that children are the real brand ambassadors of the cleanliness campaign. Giving the example of her daughter Sana, she said that whenever she sees a piece of plastic or paper, she comes in a dustbin. In a funny tone, Sourav said that these days, the children of today believe more than teachers. In such a situation, it is easy for the teachers to connect the children to the campaign.

The program was attended by Saurav Ganguly and Narhari Bangar along with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, additional mission director Naveen Kumar Aggarwal, CEO of Sahas Sanstha, Divya Tiwari, Tetra Pack South Asia's communications director Jaideep Gokhale, Ashish Chaturvedi, Istayak Amjad.
