A Swachhata pledge ceremony and cleanliness drive was organized in Transport Bhavan on 2nd October, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, to mark the beginning of “Special Campaign 3.0”. The launch saw participation of senior MoRTH officials including Additional Secretary Shri Amit Kumar Ghosh, Joint Secretaries Shri Kamlesh Chaturvedi and Shri S.P. Singh, besides others.
