Busy with city's swachhta, MBMC forgets to flush own toilet!

Saturday, January 13, 2018
By Suresh Golani

Waking up to their responsibility towards hygiene and cleanliness, the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) has embarked on the ambitious task of improving its ranking in the Swachhta (Cleanliness) Survey being conducted by the Central Government authorities under the Swachh Bharat Mission (SBM).

However, practice what you preach does not seem to apply to a section of civic officials. On one hand, the MBMC harps upon SBM - a primary part of which focuses on the day-to-day hygiene and clean toilets, but at the same time it’s own building provides the worst example of filthy and choked urinals for days altogether. The urinal in question (see pic) is inside one of the posh chambers in the Citizen Facility Center (CFC) located in the main administrative building of the civic administration in Bhayandar (west). What is more shocking is the fact that the chamber is presently used by a team of senior sanitation inspectors and personnel from the private agency  who are deputed to monitor activities and day to day statistics related to the ongoing Swachhta Survey.

According to CFC staffers they have been complaining about the filthy toilet, but no action has been taken by the sanitation staffers. It should be noted that the civic administration is already under the scanner for allegedly manipulating status of complaints that are received on the Swachhta (Cleanliness) App- a centrally monitored pan India mobile tool introduced by the ministry of urban development (MoUD). Interestingly the complaint in context to the unclean toilets in MBMC’s own premises had been uploaded on the app by an active user.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The ruling emotion today will be passion. You will feel like chatting with your beloved the whole day. However, you will incur expenses and Ganesha advises you to remain balanced. But if you have decided already to go the whole hog, make fully sure you are in the right trappings. You will thereby experience love and warmth for one and all.
