Campus cleaning drive as part of Eco Club activities was held at AIMIT on January 31. Director Dr (Fr) Melwyn Pinto SJ inaugurated the activity. He said: “We must all conduct eco club activities every month. AIMIT has planted around 700 plants in the college campus and we have added 650 KW of solar power this year. Such green initiatives must increase in our campus.”

He encouraged the students to volunteer and participate in the activities. A certificate would be given to those students who actively volunteer and participate, he said.

He referred to Amai Mahalinga Naik who was awarded the Padmashri award this year. “Amai Mahalinga Naik through his immense effort like ‘Trivikrama’ turned a piece of barren land into flourishing agricultural land by digging tunnels for water. To lead a prosperous life, he turned his barren land into a good agricultural land. Such eco warriors must be our inspiration,” he said.

Later students went in groups to clean the campus. Enthusiasm and joy were exuded by them as they went about cleaning the surroundings.

Anusha Mary, a student of MBA shared her thoughts and experience of the eco club. “The cleaning programme was very interesting.We got a chance to clean the college campus.We removed plastic waste and other waste from the campus. We look forward to come up with more activities in the coming days,” she said.

Ashwini, another student of MBA said, “The cleaning programme held at AIMIT made us feel encouraged, energetic and responsible towards keeping our campus neat and tidy.”

Students collected over 10 bags of plastic and such other waste from the campus.
