He also mentioned that other institutes like education department which creates awareness amongst the students, PHED which provides clean drinking water, toilets and sanitation facilities and all other departments also have  different roles to play. The Deputy Commissioner appealed to all the villagers to interact with the ASHA and the Anganwadi workers. And also to be aware about De-worming, Hand washing, Diversified diets and Cleanliness etc. which are very minor things but which have a big impact on the health of our future generations.
