Cleanliness, top priority for civic officials
Garbage collection up
Silt removal better
Officials spend time in field
Pressure on the workers to perform
New Delhi, October 8: Modi’s dream project, Swachh Bharath Abhiyaan, forced the civic officials in national capital Delhi to make field visits than ever before. Of course, there are several doubts whether this project gives fruitful results, but the civic officials are keen on sincerely trying to make Delhi an ideal city for this project.
After the launch of this project on October 2, Gandhi Jayanthi, most of the civic officials are spending more of their time on field rather than sitting inside the office. The garbage collection in all the three municipal corporations in New Delhi went up by 25% during this week, thanks to Modi’s initiative.
According to the details available, the garbage collection rose to 3,500 metric tonnes a day in North Delhi Municipal Corporation from 2,800 MT. In the same way it is 3,500 MT in South Delhi from 2,700 MT and it is 2,700 MT in East Delhi from 2,000 MT.
All the civic officials keen on cleanliness and sanitation and are happy after seeing much improvement in garbage collection. The special drive has increased monitoring of sanitation work leading to better results. Zonal Deputy Commissioners had been empowered to hire additional manpower to make sure sweeping and garbage collection are carried out across the city.
Since the senior officers have all been out in the field to check cleanliness, the pressure on workers to perform on sanitation also increased, said the North Corporation Commissioner Mr. Pravin Kumar Gupta.
Apart from garbage, the collection of silt from drains and construction debris has also increased in the past week in several areas in New Delhi.
In the meanwhile, the local cadre of BJP are also helping the residents of various colonies in spreading awareness to keep the streets cleaner and are in touch with civic officials to take away the garbage from street corners, where garbage dumps are provided by civic department.
The main intention of civic officials is to show the cleanliness of national capital to entire nation and to stand as role model to several states through Swachh Bharath Abhiyaan.
