The youths of Borguli village under Mebo Sub-Division, on May 10, conducted a one-day cleaning drive programme, led by Siyar Sirum (a group of youths of the same age) along with three other groups in the village, covering about 3 km stretches of roadside clearance, plastic picking and other waste materials.

The day-long cleaning drive started from Govt. Higher Secondary School, Borguli (Old Borguli) and continued to New Borguli.

The cleaning drive was conducted with the motto, ‘Let’s keep Borguli Clean, Green and Healthy'

Village playground, shopping stores and other vicinities were also cleaned by the youths, beside roadsides and community hall. Local-made bamboo bins for dumping wastes were put up in front of shops, community hall etc.

Obang Tayeng, a retired IPR Director of Arunachal and a senior citizen of the village, also participated in the cleaning drive and advised the youths to continue such good work in giving Borguli village a fresh and clean look, in line with Silluk and Ledum village in the district, both of which have won the first and second cleanest village awards, in 2019-2020. 

Tayeng hopes that the village GBs, SHGs and service unions, including other groups like Radang Sirum, would join the drive in the future and take necessary steps in putting Borguli village under the league of 'cleanest' village, in the District and the State by conducting intensive campaigns and ideas of a sustainable model.

Among the youths of Siyar Sirum, programme Chairman, Kato Tayeng, group Captain, Baro Pegu and girls in-charge, Kajol Tayeng led the cleaning drive and view that the village would be known for its cleanliness, one day.
