Mohali MC fails to improve Sanitation conditions – Vineet Verma
Mohali: Mohali is emerging as the new realty hotspot, with swanky apartment buildings and luxury housing societies cropping up at every nook and corner, but MC Mohali is yet to put in place a proper waste collection system.
Despite of scoring a zero for “garbage free city” in 2022 Swachh Survekshan held last year conditions has not improved yet. Mohali in the 2022 Swachh Survrkshan slipped 32 positions from 2021year’s 81st rank and had to settle at the 113th spot among 382 cities in the 1 to 10 lakh category.
It is pertinent to mention here that even at the state level, Mohali dropped from the second to third position since last year, with Ferozepur and Abohar clinching the top spots.
AAP State President Vyapar Mandal Vineet Verma added that Mayor and other elected councillors of Mohali Municipal Corporation has failed in all spheres of governance and added that one of the key responsibilities of the Municipal Corporation is cleaning the city, but the present Picture clearly shows that they have miserably failed. Verma added that Mohali residents voted for MC’s with great expectation, however, during the last 2 years, the Mayor and his team could not find solution to any of the civic issues being faced by the Mohali residents and must step down.
Though the Municipal Corporation spends around crores but situation on ground level remains the same.
The management of solid waste has become a major cause of concern for Mohali. Swachh Bharat Mission aims for cleaner Nation where everyone at their own level is taking some measures to make their surroundings clean, but Mohali Municipal Corporation seems to be ignoring it.
Municipal Corporation (MC) authorities claim that the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) doesn’t have a dumping site of its own so the waste generated at its newly developed private societies, including Aerocity, TDI City and other developed societies are dumped on roads and plots that are out of civic body limits.
Joint Commissioner Municipal Corporation Mohali Kiran Sharma has appealed the residents that Household waste should be separated daily into different dustbins for the different categories of waste such as Wet & Dry Waste which should be disposed of separately. Wet wastes, which consist of leftover foodstuff, vegetables, peels etc.
