It's a day to reflect on our achievements and evolve a strategy to achieve our much-desired status of a prosperous and advanced state."
On the eve of the occasion, home compost units were inaugurated today. Speaking on the same, Sawant urged locals to buy these units so that they can treat waste on their own. "Everyone should buy a home compost unit so that they can treat their waste on their own and not throw it outside."
