New Delhi, May 2019: In a bid to contribute towards a cleaner environment, Select CITYWALK, the most popular shopping centre in Delhi NCR, has come forward to support the SDMC (South Delhi Municipal Corporation) in its Swachh Bharat campaign. As a part of the initiative, SDMC and Select CITYWALK had invited the Art Kaifism group to paint the Dhalaos with social messages like girl child, education for all, against child labour, environment etc. Dhalaos are large three-walled concrete structures meant for collection of garbage from a locality or market. The campaign kickstarted and was successfully executed in the month of March and April 2019. The campaign targeted several areas across South Delhi such as Malviya Nagar Press Enclave, Hauz Khas DDA District Park, Hauz Khas Aurobindo Marg Yusuf Sarai, Green Park near Bhumiyawala Park C-Block, R.K. Puram Taxi Stand Sector 9 T-Point, Vasant Vihar Moti Bagh Gurudwara Ring Road, Munirka Bhikaji Park MTNL Building, Munirka Venkateshwar Marg Sec-1, Vasant Kunj Nelson Mandela Road B-11, Mehrauli Andheria Mod Bus Stand, Lado Sarai–Shaheed Jeet Singh Marg, Lado Sarai Katwaria Sarai near Police Post, TIGDI M.B. Road TIGDI FCTS, Pushp Vihar near NBCC Plaza, Chirag Delhi – Apeejay School Shamshan Ghat Road, C.R. Park W- Block near G.K.-II, Greater Kailash M-Block G.K.–I Market.
Nidhi Srivastava, DM, South Delhi, said, “Over the last few years, the state of cleanliness in South Delhi locality has largely improved. We have been focusing highly on the modernisation of dhalaos and mechanisation of garbage collection and disposal. Our collaboration with Select CITYWALK is a directional approach towards promoting and extending our cleanliness initiatives across every nook and corner of the South Delhi area. We are sure that this move will help us propagate the cleanliness message to the masses at large, along with igniting positive changes to the Swachh Bharat campaign.”
Commenting on the initiative, Yogeshwar Sharma, Executive Director and CEO, Select CITYWALK, said, “At Select CITYWALK, we have always been a trendsetter in promoting sustainability and a cleaner environment. Our support to SDMC in the Swachh Bharat Campaign is a significant step in encouraging the people to keep the surroundings clean. Along with conveying the cleanliness message to all sections of society, the initiative will also spread social messages such as education for all, no child labour, protecting the environment etc.”
Select CITYWALK has always been a true propagator of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Earlier in 2017, the shopping center, in collaboration with SDMC, revamped the Jamun Wala Park in South Delhi from a dumping zone into a lush safe green land for the local communities of South Delhi. The initiative saw huge support from local communities and led to a cleaner and greener environment around for them.
