Chief Secretary D.S. Mishra said that a special sanitation drive would be carried out, as is done during the festival of Diwali, and this should be made into a national public movement.

"Programmes should be held at places linked with freedom fighters. Each day of the week during Independence Day week should have a different programme.

People from all walks of life like social organisations, public representatives, NCC and NSO cadets, trade organisations should be linked with it," he said.
