TGG members participated in Bagmati Mahotsav that marked the 150th week of Bagmati cleaning campaign. The campaign was initiated by former chief secretary of government Leela Mani Paudyal, a TGG Mentor in May, 2013.

The mahotsav started with a clean-up activity led by the President Bidhya Devi Bhandari followed by the inauguration of a children park (that spreads across approximately 32,900 sq. ft.). The president appealed to the mass to take the initiative to preserve the holy river to bring it back to its original state.

The event was attended by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Physical Infrastructure Bijaya Kumar Gachhadar, the leading campaigner Mr. Poudyal, high ranking government officials, volunteers, Nepal police, Armed Police, students and 19 contestants from the Miss Nepal pageant that will be held this year.
