zain | 8 years ago | Reply Its good news but public needs to participate in this as well. While all of us openly accept and say that cleanliness is half of our faith yet we make so much mess in our cities. Also, i have noticed that all these workers lacked proper attire such as masks, gloves, and their work clothes. Other than that i am delighted to see such hard working people dedicated to keep our country clean. keep up the good work !!
