Tara Chand tours City areas
Srinagar, June 21: Deputy Chief Minister Tara Chand along with a team of officers Thursday visited Boulvard, Nishat and Nasembagh areas of Srinagar.
An official spokesman said Chand while inspecting Nishat sewerage treatment plant (STP) was informed that daily treatment capacity of the plant has reached to 4.5 million liters. He directed the concerned officers to carry out regular testes of treated water to ensure its 100 percent purity.
Terming tourism as the backbone of state’s economy, the Deputy Chief Minister asked the Vice-Chairman LAWDA and Commissioner Srinagar Municipal Corporation to further improve the basic facilities being provided to the tourists by their departments.
He asked the officers to ensure proper cleanliness in and around all tourist places alongside Dal Lake.
Giving details of the Dal cleaning project, VC LAWDA informed that five machines, imported from US and Switzerland, along with old machines have been put into service to clean unwanted weeds in the Lake.
He said augmentation of the machineries had become necessary in view of the growing magnitude of the weed.
Tara Chand directed him to ensure lifting of extracted weed from the road immediately without allowing it to pile up for next day, besides ensure renovating the footpaths. He instructed the officers of the LAWDA to show substantial progress on all Dal development works.
