KATHMANDU: The Bagmati Cleanup Mega Campaign and other related cleaning programs were continued even amidst torrential rains in Kathmandu today.

Trash and garbage along the river in Pashupati and Shankhamul areas were collected and managed today as part of the 424th week of the Mega Campaign today.

Member of the Board of Directors of the High-Powered Bagmati Civilization Integrated Development Committee, Dr Mala Kharel led the cleaning program at Pashupati area while Campaigner Dr Laxmi Poudel led the cleanup program at Shankhamul area.

Campaigners and volunteers managed the waste and trash on the riverbank in these areas.

Similarly, waste in the area south of the Anandapul at Tokha Municipality-9 has been managed in the 357th week today of the Bishnumati Cleanup Campaign. Tree saplings have also been planted in the area.

The campaign of cleaning one of the most important and revered rivers in the Kathmandu Valley was launched on 19 May 2013.
Likewise, the cleanup has been done in the Bagmati river upstream of Guheshwori, the Rudramati rivulet, the upstream areas of Bishnumati rivulet, the Manohara rivulet, the Godawari Khola rivulet, and the northern and western sectors of the Ring Road.

The cleaning works were carried out in these areas by maintaining physical distance and adopting health safety measures in view of the risk of COVID-19.

The Bagmati Cleanup Mega Campaign has spurred similar cleanup programs in other tributaries of the Bagmati River. The cleanup programs have been continued at 20 locations around the Ring Road as well.

Emulating the Bagmati Cleanup Mega Campaign, cleaning of public places and rivers is taking place in 107 places in major cities, rivers, and cultural heritage sites throughout the country including in the Kathmandu Valley.
