The Tibetan government-in-exile will undertake a mass cleanliness drive Tuesday in and around Mcleod Ganj near here, pitching in India’s ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ to commemorate Mahatma Gandhi’s 149th birth anniversary.

Tibetan government-in-exile Health Minister Choekyong Wangchuk will flag off the drive at Mcleod Ganj, said an official of the Dharamshala-headquartered Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Monday.

“Tibetan people across India are observing 2018 with a series of Pan-India events to express gratitude to the Government and people of India for hosting His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people for over six decades in the country,” Saldon added.
