Driving home the point that the Clean India campaign is to be taken seriously, Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung suspended six public officials on Wednesday after surprise inspections of government buildings.
The municipal deputy commissioner of Shahdara north, two school principals, a vice-principal and two public work department officials were suspended for not implementing the Swachh Bharat campaign properly.
A show-cause notice was also issued to municipal deputy commissioner of Civil Lines, who is an IAS officer. Written warnings were issued to municipal deputy commissioner of Shahdara South and the medical suprintendent of NC Joshi Hospital in Karol Bagh. The principal of a public school in Rohini has been transferred while the contract of cleanliness at Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital in Rohini was cancelled.
Jung inspected eight hospitals, 20 schools and six municipal deputy commissioner’s offices.
“These surprise visits will become a weekly affair. I along with my officers would lead these visits to various departments and offices every week. Swachch Bharat Abhiyan is an important mission and anyone found lacking shall be shown no mercy. Let this be a warning. More action will follow,” Jung said after the review.
