SNCF ADOPTS 45 RAILWAY STATIONS FOR CLEANLINESS
On a request from Shri Suresh Prabhu, the Hon’ble Minister for Railways addressed to His Holiness Baba Hardev Singh Ji Maharaj, the Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation has adopted 45 main Railway Stations across the country for cleanliness.
The campaign will be launched as a part of ‘Swachh Rail, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ on October 2, 2015. More than 20,000 volunteers of the Foundation, Sant Nirankari Sewa Dal members and other devotees of the Sant Nirankari Mission will participate in the campaign on that single day. Thereafter, the Foundation will conduct the campaign at each selected Railway Station at least once in every month.
In the meantime, the Foundation carried out a cleanliness drive at New Delhi Railway Station on September 19, 2015. The railway authorities were very much impressed by the overwhelming response by volunteers. They appreciated their quality of work and spirit of discipline and dedication.
In Delhi, the Railway Stations listed for the campaign are Delhi Main, New Delhi and Hazrat Nizamuddin. The other Railway Stations to be covered are: Ambala Cantt, Bhodwal Mazri (Haryana), Varanasi, Lucknow, Lucknow Char Bagh, Dehradun, Haridwar, Gwalior, Agra Cantt, Allahabad, Kanpur Central, Mathura, Ajmer, Jaipur, Udaipur City, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Kota, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Indore, Mumbai Central Main, Dadar, Nagpur, Pune, Kolhapur, Patna, Dhanbad, Vishakhapatnam, Bhubaneshwar, Tata Nagar, Ernakulam, Chennai Central, Hyderabad, Secunderabad, Raipur, Bangalore City, Ratnagiri, Swant Wadi, Rajapur and Chiplun.
As we all know, service to humanity has always been an important mode of expression of man’s devotion to God. Guided by the same spirit, the Sant Nirankari Charitable Foundation has been organizing blood donation camps and carrying out tree plantation and cleanliness drives in India and abroad for the past several years. And it’s a matter of great satisfaction indeed that the Foundation’s contribution has found universal acknowledgement and appreciation. This has also gone a long way to take the spiritual message of the Mission based on Truth, love, peace and tolerance forward. The present letter received by His Holiness from the Hon’ble Railway Minister also speaks of the same.
