With the theme of “Clean Campus, Sigh of relief and acquiring healthy knowledge”, the varsity administrative officials accompanied by large number of staffs and students joined the cleanliness campaign on Monday.

RU Vice-chancellor Prof Abdus Sobhan inaugurated the daylong drive. He took the initiative in order to make all the offices and office premises clean. He also asked all his office colleagues and others concerned to keep their respective office and office premises clean all along.

Among others, Pro-Vice-chancellors Professor Ananda Kumar Shaha and Chowdhury Jakakria, Treasurer Prof Mustafizur Rahman Al Arif, Registrar Prof Abdul Bari, Students Adviser Prof Laila Arjuman Banu and Proctor Prof Luffor Rahman were present on the occasion.

VC Prof Sobhan said sound health is the most important wealth and urged all his colleagues to maintain cleanliness to improve environment and reduce the extent of diseases aiming to build a healthy and prosperous nation.

He said “Our environment is a testimony to the state of our mentality. We indiscriminately pollute our environment. We know that one RU’s cleanliness effort is not enough but we have to make an effort to change our habit. We must have to stop throwing garbage here and there to protect our environment”.

He highlighted the importance of maintaining cleanliness at office premises, institutions, homesteads and open places in the city. Cleanliness is a must to keep air fresh and improve environment.

Prof Sobhan asked for adequate awareness programmes and coordinated waste management policy of City Corporation.
