New Delhi: Lieutenant-Governor Anil Baijal on Sunday took stock of cleanliness efforts in South Delhi’s Saket area and appointed SDMC commissioner as the nodal officer for coordination among various agencies for sanitation in the city, even as he vowed to conduct more regular inspections. This comes at a time when thousands of sanitation workers of EDMC have gone on an indefinite strike, demanding payment of their salaries due for three months.

The inspection included visit to the BRT corridor, Press Enclave Road, Aurobindo Marg to Ring Road, (Safdarjung Hospital to R.K. Puram areas) and Outer Ring Road (at Munirka). The L-G also chaired a meeting at South MCD office at Green Park where he emphasised on the need for proper solid waste management, removal of malba from pavements, public spaces, providing children with proper public spaces in the city by “freeing up” parks from garbage, parked vehicles and beautification of area under the flyovers and unclogging the U turns.

“The LG stressed that all agencies concerned should improve the condition of public parks. He also emphasised on putting in place an implementable ‘parking policy’ at the earliest,” an official statement said.

The LG also directed that the concerned agencies will ensure complete removal of malba from public spaces before releasing payment to the contractors of civil works. This should be a built in condition of the contracts. In case contractors concerned do not remove the malba or solid waste, the same would be removed at his risk and cost.
