The “Love Ka Hai Intezaar” actor Keith said: ‘While the entire city was rejoicing yesterday with the visarjans, our beaches are in dire condition the next day. When I was approached for this clean up drive, I didn’t think twice before saying yes and in fact Rochelle told me that she too would love to join me as its a cause she really believes in too. I have seen images floating on the Internet of the conditions next day but I have to tell you when I saw it in front of me today with my own eyes, I was shaken. I wish we would go ecofriendly and not harm our mother earth which has given us such a beautiful life and planet to live on. We live in a beautiful country, I wish we took pride in our country and treated it well by keeping it clean.’

 

Model and anchor Rochelle Rao said that DNA and other organisations have been doing an amazing job in bringing citizens together to clean up the beach while actor Keith Sequeira said, “It should be a part of the process. The condition of the beach shows how important education and awareness is. We should respect the beach. It is part of our heritage; We should take up the responsibility of cleaning it up.”

350-400 metric tonne of garbage was collected at the clean-up and it took the garbage trucks 40 trips from Juhu to the dump yard.
