Green Protocol helps turn Pongala festival clean and safe

Thiruvananthapuram, Feb 25 (UNI) The intervention of Suchitwa Mission and the city corporation with a ‘green protocol’ turned the Pongala Festival of the Attukal Bhagavathy temple in the city on Sunday clean and safe with thousands of woman devotees and organisers complying fully with the guidelines in this regard.
Responding to the call to shun use of single-use plastic and other polluting materials, the devotees converged for the festival with steel plates and steel glasses, which made a marked difference to the festival this time.
The campaign mounted by the Green Army volunteers of Thiruvananthapuram Corporation and resource persons of the Suchitwa Mission with the support of the temple trust ahead of the festival highlighting the theme “Green pongala, Safe pongala’ created great resonance among the devotees and organisers of various related activities like free distribution of food and drinking water in every nook and corner of the city.
