Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh), Oct. 22 -- : In a unique initiative, trees in Gomti Nagar's Rajiv Gandhi ward are being painted with different colours as part of the beautification drive.

Councillor Arun Tiwari, who is the main brain behind the drive, says that the ward ranked third in the Cleanliness Survey 2019, which inspired him to do more to bag the first position.

"Rajiv Gandhi 2nd ward came third in the Cleanliness Survey 2019 and bagged the first position in Lucknow. We decided to do something more to achieve the first position. We sat with local people and decided that trees should be painted and there should be street art showcasing the culture of Lucknow. We are working on people's suggestions on street art," he told ANI.
