'Clean India' attracts corporates
Panaji, Oct 3: Corporate houses have joined hands with the Union government to keep various cities and historic monuments across the country clean, Union Tourism Minister Sripad Naik said today.

Naik told PTI that corporates like ONGC have come forward to adopt twelve destinations including Taj Mahal (Agra), Lal Quila (Delhi), Purana Quila (Delhi), which they will keep clean at their own expense. He said that industrialists and corporate houses have also expressed interest in adopting various cities across the country.

"The corporate houses can display their banners in places where they have adopted," the minister said. Naik said that with corporate and industrialists volunteering in large numbers to contribute for the 'Clean India' campaign, changes would be visible within next one year.

He said that Goa is also included in the list the cities that would be adopted by industrialists. Wielding the broom himself, Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, launched the 'Clean India' campaign joined by chief ministers, lawmakers, prominent personalities from various fields along with lakhs of countrymen in a mass-drive that is expected to cost nearly Rs 2 lakh crore.
