With the countdown having begun for Swachhata Survekshan Municipal Commissioner (MC), Dinesh Chandra Singh, today visited several hotspots in the city to take stock of preparations by the GMC.
Singh visited Ward No 8 with the local councilor. Here near Basant Chowk, it was found that plastic glasses and bottles were littering the area near a shop. As the MC had earlier put the onus of such littering in an area upon the sanitation inspectors, the area sanitation inspector, Ashok Kumar was fined Rs 2,000 for not being able to keep his area clean.
The MC also warned all sanitation inspectors over the phone that any such negligence in future will apart from penalty, also attract departmental action against them.
