    This Village In Sivasagar Is On A Mission To Shun Plastic And Tobacco-Free

    The villagers hold the door to door campaigns to sensitize the public on the importance of maintaining hygiene and living in harmony with nature

    The Dewalaya Gayan village in Upper Assam’s Sivasagar district is one of the four ‘clean and green’ villages selected under the Swachhata campaign launched by the Sarbananda Sonowal led BJP government. The villagers have made it a point to keep the village environment-friendly by slashing the use of single-use plastics and tobacco.

    The village is divided into three segments and the inhabitants here including men, women, youth happily come out together in large numbers every day with bamboo broomsticks to keep the village clean and green setting an ideal example for the rest to follow. They have also ensured planting of around 200 medicinal neem saplings along the road.

    Not just keeping the village clean, the villagers also hold the door-to-door campaigns to sensitize the public on the importance of maintaining hygiene and living in harmony with nature to sustain the existence of humans. The Nari Surakshya Samaj also join the campaign from time to time.

    Way back on September 6th, 2018, Forest man of India, Jadav Payeng had visited the village and since then there was no looking back.

    Efforts to make the village renewable energy source friendly are also on with the installation of at least 20 solar lights. The villagers have also installed welcome gates with Swachh Bharat slogans to keep up the nation-wide cleanliness drive.
