Garbage issue needs to be tackled from the streets and by the aam aadmi
Prahlad Rao | February 4, 2016
We the Indians ignore basics in almost all acts of ours is well illustrated by the dirty Delhi. The national capital, with exception of NDMC area, looks like one huge garbage dump. Whether it is politics are deep game plan of various political players is of little concern of the public at large. What they need is basic public hygiene.
Consider these: we are talking of seventh pay commission payment of over Rs one lakh crores, smart cities of thousands of crores and of course increase in salaries of law makers of Delhi. In the face of these huge payouts, the salaries of Delhi’s municipal employees seem negligible. But they have not been paid for months.
Employees of Delhi's three civic bodies - North Delhi Municipal Corporation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation and East Delhi Municipal Corporation - have been protesting the non-payment of salaries for the past few months.
To end the strike Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government announced a loan of Rs 551 crore for payment of salaries. But the agitating MCD employees have refused to call off their strike.
Apart from this release of funds the Delhi government of Aam Aadmi Party has done nothing substantial. Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, is meeting lt governor Najeeb Jung and mayors today.
But what is needed is ground level work and the AAP workers have to set an example. They should raise awareness about minimum generation of garbage and civil society movement to clear street side garbage.
Meetings should be left to officials and the leaders should lead the aam aadmi to take charge of the garbage that threatens health of the public, especially the children and the old.
The AAP owes it to the public of Delhi a clear politics and a cleaner Delhi.
