Shri Nand Kishore Goenka has presented an automatic sweeping machine to the Hisar Municipal Corporation, on behalf of the Essel Group. On this occasion, the ADC of Hisar, Shri Rajnarayan Kaushik, MLA Shri Kamal Gupta and city councillors and officials provided the green signal for the cleaning of the main streets of Hisar by this machine.

In his address, Shri Nand Kishore Goenka applauded the cleanliness drive initiated by Shri Narendra Modi and said that the Prime Minister has inspired the entire nation to keep their cities and surroundings clean. He said that it is not only the duty of the concerned Municipal Corporation to keep the city clean; it is also the responsibility of the citizens. This sweeping machine has been provided to inspire the people of Hisar, so they can also contribute to keeping their city clean.

On this occasion, CTM Girish Kumar, Municipal Corporation official Ramjilal, Senior Dy Mayor Dayanand Saini, Corporators Rekha Eran and Rekha Saini, President of Agroha Vikas Trust Shri Satyanarayan Goenka, General Secretay Krishna Kharia, Treasurer Dharmendra Goel, Radheshyam Arya, Sandeep Singla, Vikas Godara and well-known personalities of the city were also present.

ADC Shri Rajnarayan Kaushik and MLA Dr Kamal Gupta applauded the noble cause taken up by the Essel Group. They have asked people to come forward to contribute towards the cleanliness of the city. They appreciated the cleanliness drive being initiated by PM Modi and asked the citizens to support this drive in order to make it a success.

While handing over the machine, Shri Goenka requested the Municipal officials to keep a log sheet to maintain the working record of the machine and to carry out a timely analysis of the same.

The idea originated from the Essel Group Chairman, Dr Subhash Chandra who was once passing through the Hisar highway and witnessed a woman on Dabra Chowk who was cleaning the road and narrowly escaped from a moving truck. After seeing this, Dr Chandra decided that he would try to save the precious lives of sweeping employees and he donated the machine which is worth Rs 28 Lakh.

The automatic sweeping machine has a vacuum system which stores the dirt in the machine. There is brush-like equipment on both sides of the machine which is used to sweep the road. The automatic sweeping machine will help to clean big roads and streets, and it will be the responsibility of the Municipal sweeping employees to clean the narrow streets and small roads, where the machine cannot reach.
