The clean up drive of government museum campus, focusses on giving a facelift to its lengthy compound wall spread about 15,000 sq ft, an ONGC release said. The compound wall clean up began manually yesterday, and it will be followed up by "cleaning the wall with high pressure water jet washer" over the next eight days.
The objective is to restore the original lustrue of thisheritage structure to a large extent, the release said. The wall which was built in 1851 with special sand stone, lost its lustrue due to "weathering," according to the release.
The clean up drive was launched by Executive Director (ONGC-Cauvery Basin), T Rajendran on July 15 and the initiaitve was part of programmes the ONGC took up under the 'Swachhata Pakhwada,' fortnight (July 1 to 15). "Swachhata Pakhwada," involving the Central government ministries, departments and PSUs is aimed at dedicated clean up initiatives with a special focus which stretches to a fortnight.
