Gurgaon: A day after the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon () kicked off a marathon drive in the city, it announced a ward-wise sanitation that will start on March 15. The corporation will be looking to address the issues related to solid and liquid waste management in all wards during the drive.
Under the project, MCG commissioner Yashpal Yadav said, the corporation will form different teams who will pick up various wards one after the other. “We will work with the councillors and residents to address the solid and liquid waste management related issues of their respective wards,” said Yadav.
The initiative will include streamlining the process of trash collection from households and cleaning of open garbage dumps.
During the MCG budget meeting on Monday, Yadav said that the teams will work on clearing the construction waste dumped on the roads and open plots. “For sewage waste management, we will ensure cleaning of the drains wherever required,” said the commissioner.
In the budget meeting, several councillors complained about the absence of the basic amenities such as sewage and garbage disposal infrastructure in many areas.
Seema Pahuja, the councillor of ward number 15 had said, “There is a serious situation when it comes to basic services such as sewage disposal mechanism in the city. We don’t have enough resources to deal with sewage overflows most of the times.” Several other councillors have expressed similar concerns in the past.
The ward-wise programme will be similar to MCG’s Nigam Apke Dwar campaign that was launched in May last year. The objective of the ward-wise campaign was to clean and repair the roads, dispose sewage, and fill pot holes. MCG is now hoping to re-launch the initiative in a more streamlined manner.
