Clean India Technology Week 2017 was inaugurated with the traditional lighting of the lamp by Dr B. Janardhan Reddy, Municipal Commissioner, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation. Present on the occasion were Dr. T.K. Sreedevi, Commissioner & Director, Municipal Administration, Government of Telengana, Franziska Döll, Director South Asia, Thüringen International/Thuringia International and Ravindra Modi, President-The Federation of Telengana and Andhra Pradesh Chambers of Commerce & Industry, besides suppliers and delegates from the cleaning, laundry, car and waste industry.
Speaking on the occasion, Sreedevi, said that Telangana being one of the youngest States, “our vision is to have clean and liveable cities. Currently, Telangana has 73 ULBs or towns. Before the 150th centenary of Mahatma Gandhi, we want to make Telangana one of the cleanest and the most desirable State to live. At Clean India Show, we are happy to see latest in cleaning technologies under one roof.”
Ravindra Modi, hailing the Swachh Bharat initiative said, “In India, we are very particular about personal hygiene but we do not bother about our surroundings. I believe, by hosting Clean India Show at Hyderabad, it will not help the city but also Telangana State as a whole. Shows like this, will educate people on using different types of equipment and chemicals which are conducive to keep their home, offices, factories and restaurants clean. Hygiene is one of the aspects which is very important in food and pharma industry and in restaurants. People have started realizing the importance of Clean & Hygienic food. This is where initiatives like Clean India Show will help Telangana and Andhra Pradesh States. I am glad Clean India Technology Week is also hosting a show on important area of waste management.
