A word of praise for Pestom Sagar ALM
September 21, 2005
Pestom Sagar Residents Association's vermi-composting project
received a glowing tribute on Sept 17 when Subrat Ratho, assistant
municipal commissioner, BMC, visited the Association's vermi-composting
project in Nana Nani Park, Road No six.
In the issue dated Sept 14-21, metro had reported about the
Association's 10-day drive to vermi-compost nirmalaya generated by
Ganesh mandals in the eastern suburbs.
Congratulating the ALM members, Ratho says, "There are few ALMs
in the city who take an initiative of this scale. Pestom Sagar has
indeed done a good job."
Ratho says he will promote Pestom Sagar ALM as an example of civic
activism. "I want all ALMs to take up civic causes so that
festivals do not create a mess. I will take up the example of this
ALM and work on a larger segment next year."
Dr Vijay Sangole, the convener of the ALM, says Ratho's visit was a
morale booster. "He appreciated our initiative and encouraged
us to cover a larger area next year," says Dr Sangole.
