Nagpur: In a novel move, the Education Department of Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) and Nagpur Traffic Police are jointly organising a “Mummy Papa You Too” campaign aimed at imbibing cleanliness importance among students. The campaign will be implemented from January 13 to 19 in city.

With focus on students, the unique campaign will give a message to parents and create mass awareness on cleanliness.

The campaign “Mummy Papa You Too” is aimed at cleanliness in city with public participation. Various contests will be organised during the campaign with a message to maintain cleanliness and follow traffic rules.
