Shocked to see beach even after cleanliness drive: AoL members

TMI Correspondent
Port Blair, Feb 05: The Art of Living (an NGO) initiated to carry out Beach Cleanliness drives on once a week basis at various beaches in South Andaman. On Jan 26, 2020, the Art of Living team and Beodnabad Panchayat, as part of its Beach Cleanliness drives has collected huge plastics and other leftovers at Rangachang Beach and disposed off the stuffs to maintain the beauty of the beach.

However, the Art of Living team have revisited beach and went to same place, where they have conducted a Beach Cleanliness drive a week ago. And, they observed that local people littering, consuming alcohol and everywhere drunkard people roaming, wastes are scattered around and felt unsafe for women for family visits.
An Art of Living (NGO) member said that, "Administration and police department is failed to provide security to the place. Beach has to be cleaned that is one aspect, but also this place need safety and moral disciplined. Any casualty can happen anytime. I appreciate under such kind of situations also our volunteers continued the work." We feel administration and forest department should keep these places safe and clean. Otherwise these places can become major crime spots, he added.
Prominent citizen of city says that, "people must be educated not according to qualification, but should have respect towards our places morally. The practice of throwing wastes anywhere should be treated as punishable offence, and then only, the people will refrain from doing such things.
