To promote the campaign and to attract as many schools from the city, a workshop was held at Suresh Bhat Hall on Wednesday, January 8, where principals of more than a thousand schools were invited to inform them about the program.“No one can be forced to clean the city; all of this is totally dependent on the mindset of the citizens.

If all the citizens take this charge then no one can stop Nagpur city to become the next most clean city India.” Said Mayor Sandeep Joshi during the workshop.
