ITANAGAR, Jan 12: Assam-based Defence Research Laboratory (DRL), Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) scientist Dr. Soumya Chatterjee gave a PowerPoint presentation to Governor Brig. (Retd) B.D. Mishra at Raj Bhavan here on Tuesday.
The presentation was on latest technologies developed by DRL in bio toilets and briefed about various types of bio toilets developed to suit various high altitudes, hill areas and plain regions.
Appreciating scientific achievement of DRDO, Dr Mishra suggested construction of bio toilets in Arunachal Pradesh. He reiterated that such a proactive role of DRDO will promote PM Narendra Modi’s Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
Dr Mishra stressed on promoting bio toilets for maintaining pristine environment of the state. Without a proper toilet system, the sludge of toilets reaches the streams and rivers which results in water pollution and spread of diseases.
He urged Tezpur-based DRDO to launch a pilot programme by installing some bio toilets in the extended complex near lower Birup Colony here for state citizens to adopt such innovative projects.
Rajiv Gandhi University vice chancellor Prof. Saket Kushwaha, who has been carrying out cleanliness campaigns in RGU campus, was also present. (PRO)
