HaSiRu Mithra team with help of BBMP cleaned-up the Park in SSPalya Lake, over 35 Trees will be Planted on 5th June as part of World Environment Day #TREEathon.

Both Ward 190 & Ward 174 need to increase Green cover, many trees have been cut due to construction, with increase in population density and reduction of Green cover has to be halted and more emphasis has to be given to plant Trees.

#KillBills 7th & 8th May 2016

HaSiRu Mithra has been bringing in much needed focus on Garbage, Segregation, Black-spot, Plastic Ban, Lakes, Illegal Bills/Posters/Banners/Stickers, Tree Plantation for the last 5 months in HSR Layout-SSPalya. 

These issues are extremely interconnected and all have to be addressed to ensure we have a Cleaner, Greener and Garbage Free locality. The Team has been working relentlessly for the last 5 months ever since the group was formed on 03rd of Dec 2015. 

With over 17 Waste Segregation & Composting Workshops, 13 Black-spot fixing and Clean-up drives, 05 Talk sessions at Govt Colleges & Garment Factories, 19 Door-2-Door Campaigns for Waste Segregation & Plastic Ban, 02 Awareness drives at the Temples, , 09 #KillBills events (a drive against Posters/Bills/Flex/Banners etc) and Installation of 05 Information boards on Waste Segregation in different Parks HaSiRu Mithra has been leading the Campaign for a Cleaner, Greener and Garbage Free locality. 

BBMP, Administration, RWAs & Citizens have been very supportive, BUT BBMP has to do a lot more to ensure that the ground level momentum built by HaSiRu Mithra is not a wasted effort. 

Citizen participation and Activism is indeed the most difficult aspect in many Wards, but when Citizen groups like HaSiRu Mithra are coming out and lending their Time, Effort, Voice, Support the Administration should make use of it and implement the ideas and a develop a good working model at the earliest.
