Mohali: Heaps of garbage can be seen all around the city roads and at undesignated places across the town proves that the elected councilors and concerned officials of corroborate the fact and local councillors and civic authorities have lost interest in keeping the Mohali green and clean sad SAD Leader Parvinder Singh Sohana.
While sharing the pics of garbage strewn all around in Mohali, Sad Leader said safai karamcharis were cleaning the main roads and market areas mere an eye wash and added that the present situation shows that, they are least bothered about streets and areas behind the markets where scattered garbage paints a filthy picture,” he said.
Crores of rupees are being spent by the Municipal Corporation Mohali for cleanliness in the town, if these are the result, the system needs to be investigated demanded SAD Leader.
SAD leader reminded that there was a time in past Mohali was awarded for cleanliness , byt unfortunately now day by day the situation is getting worst and said we have to maintain it by all means.
SAD leader said Mohali’s rank in the annual cleanliness survey had dropped to 81 in 2022 which was 32 positions down from 113 in 2021 but the concerned officers seems to be least bothered.
It is pertinent to mention here that the Swachh Survekshan assessment teamwas in Mohali few days ago and were greeted to the sight of littered garbage and mismanaged disposal of wet and dry waste.
Sad Leader said he had written a letter to Chief Minister Punjab S. Bhagwant Singh Mann and Mohali Municipal Corporation Commissioner Navjot Kaur and requested them to take initiatives to make the corrections at the earliest possible before the situation goes out of control.
The Swachh Bharat Mission Urban evaluates cleanliness in public spaces and toilets, takes resident feedback and evaluates the municipality’s performance in waste collection, segregation and processing.
In the 2021 survey, Mohali achieved a score of 58.5%. The same fell further to 53.8% in 2022. Even at the state level, the city’s position dropped from second to third in the period — with Ferozepur and Abohar taking the lead. Of particular concern is the service-level progress component, carrying a significant weightage of 40% in the assessment. Mohali’s performance in the parametre has remained dismal, garnering only 1,762 out of 3,000 marks. A recurring failure to implement effective garbage segregation at source is the main contributor to this low score.
