He added that thematic pictures with messages on cleanliness would be drawn on walls and unkempt buildings.

He added that a giant LED screen will be installed at five prominent places in city frequented by tourists and general public to beam message on cleanliness.

Bags to replace buckets: Jagadeesha said that MCC has decided to provide bags instead of buckets to public for segregation of wet and dry waste.

The participants at the meeting suggested that cleanliness awareness should be made intensively among school and college students. They also sought good public toilets near Hardinge Circle, Ashokapuram and Chamarajapuram Railway Stations.

Earlier to that, a meeting was held with hotel owners. Jagadeesha appealed the hotel owners to give top priority for cleanliness by banning plastic and sought their co-operation for illumination of circles and buildings during Dasara.
