Dhaka Clean-up Campaign, organized by Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) in the capital on April 13, has hit the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest clean-up campaign.

DSCC Public Relations Officer Zakir Hossain told UNB that authorities of the Guinness Book of World Records published it on their website on Monday.

The DSCC in collaboration with Reckitt Benckiser Bangladesh had arranged the program to raise awareness among people to make the city a clean and a healthy one.

The initiative was taken to create awareness among people that practising hygiene should not be limited to personal life only; rather it should be practised at a community level to build a clean city.

Over 20,000 people, including members of Rover Scouts, Bangladesh National Cadet Core, Dhaka Metropolitan Police and Fire Service and Civil Defence, celebrities, actors, students from numerous educational institutions and social activists, had taken to the streets with brooms spontaneously to set the record that day.

The previous record was set by India's Vadodara Municipal Corporation last year as more than 5,000 people took part in a clean-up drive in that city.
