New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded ‘Waste to Wealth’ efforts by Kamala Maharana, an entreprising lady from Odisha.
Participating in ‘Mann K Baat’ program he said ‘Waste to Wealth’ is also an important dimension of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
Kamala Maharana, a sister from Kendrapada district of Odisha, runs a Self Help Group (SHG).
The women of this group make many things like baskets and mobile stands from milk pouches and other plastic packing materials.
This is becoming a good source of income for them along with ensuring cleanliness.
PM said ” If we resolve, we can make a huge contribution towards a clean India. At least we all should take a pledge to replace plastic bags with cloth bags. You will see, how much satisfaction your resolution will give you, and also inspire other people.”
