Young bureaucrats in India are now taking the change in their hands. They are not waiting for the state and Central governments to take action of the menace in their area. With their new ideas and foresight they have been winning the hearts of the people in their areas.
Earlier, Gopalganj District Magistrate Rahul Kumar was in news for helping a widow to get back her job in school. Now, it’s an IAS officer from Kozhikode of Kerala who has created headlines for his innovative ideas.
Kozhikode district collector Prasanth Nair, who is known for bringing innovative ideas to get work done has waved his magic again as he asked locals to clean Pisharikavu lake in Koyilandy in exchange of a sumptuous plate of Kozhikode special biryani.
Nair has started a new trend for the other collectors. Needless to say, locals happily obliged and clean the lake.
On 26th January, Nair on his Facebook page congratulated the people and said “Congratulations to all the volunteers who got together this morning to clean up the Pisharikavu lake in Koyilandy. Cleaning up a 57,000 square meter water body is not a small deal!".
The lake was polluted and covered with slug and water hyacinth.
The Biryani was funded by a portion of the drought prevention fund of the district administration. He had also mentioned that maintenance of water bodies is essential for prevention of drought in the area.
Nair, is very popular in the area for his innovative ideas for civil improvement and good work. Popularly known as 'Collector Bro', Nair is known to encourage crowd funded events.
