GK CITY CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Apr 25: After introducing nocturnal sanitation in the City centre areas, the Srinagar Municipal Corporation will now onwards keep the summer Capital clean even on Sundays.
Besides to improve public grievance redressal system, the Ward Officers of various City areas will have to establish helplines and raise hoardings in this regard.
All this and much more was decided by the SMC Commissioner, Dr GN Qasba Wednesday during his meeting with the civic body staff to realize his recently coined slogan of: Clean Srinagar, Green Srinagar.
An official handout said the Commissioner SMC, Dr GN Qasba held meeting with various Municipal officials. “After the
threadbare discussions, Dr Qasba directed all the concerned Ward Officers including the enforcement wing to ensure that no violation of rules for building permissions and encroachment should come up anywhere in the concerned wards.”
“Stern action will be initiated against those officials who do not apprise administration and ignore such matters,” Dr Qasba said.
“While empowering ward officers Dr Qasba stressed on the need of mass contact with general public besides setting up helpline hoardings at different locations in the City, so that people have an easy access for addressing their problems and grievances to the corporation,” the SMC handout said.
The Commissioner directed Chief Sanitation Officer Manzoor Ahmed Turray to ensure the strengthening of attendance of Sanitary workers/Safai Wallas on regular basis in the Wards. “Directions were also given to go for cleansing services on Sundays as well, particularly in the tourist areas and an appeal has to be made to people to restrain from throwing waste material outside their homes on Sundays,” the handout said.
