Ghaziabad: GNN sanitation & other staff pulled up for shoddy work yet again


While on a tour of various areas under City & Mohan Nagar zones, Municipal Commissioner, Dinesh Chandra Singh found that silt extracted from drains had not been lifted away and cleanliness of many drains had not been done as per the norms. He was furious and asked the City Health Officer and all SFIs to clean up the drains that come under the Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam jurisdiction. The geo-tagged photos of the drive will have to be provided after it is completed.

At Mohan Nagar it was found near Sikanderpur that a community toilet was locked and there was waterlogging outside it. An explanation was sought as to why the toilet was locked and the area SFI was instructed to get the toilet unlocked and clean up the toilet.

City Health Officer and other staff were instructed to step up the cleaning work of all community and public toilets built by the GNN under the Swachh Bharat Mission and to submit a report to Nodal Officer, SBM and the Municipal Commissioner.

Dustbins put up by the GNN were found to be broken and lids of many such bins were found broken sue to which these were displace from their place of installation. The Municipal Commissioner asked officials to get them repaired and to place them as before.

It was also instructed to see that no sweeping machines of the GNN were lying dysfunctional. Further, the Municipal Commissioner asked the officials to prepare a roster for cleaning up of road dividers and roadsides.

It was also found out that a drain near Karan Gate at Pasonda was choked. Dinesh Chandra Singh was furious on the area SFI and asked him to clean up the drain, remove the silt and to make available the pictures that were geo-tagged- before and after cleaning.

Secondly, on the civil terminal road some trees were uprooted due to caving in of the roadside earth. He directed that the Nigam officials should coordinate with the PWD staff and get the road repaired, especially for the rainy season ahead.

Sanitation and other officials were strictly warned for carrying out regular cleaning work in wards.
