DIVISIONAL COMMISSIONER RK Mittal, stepped out of his airconditioned chamber, on Saturday, to inspect the civic conditions in the city, after repeated reports of poor quality of potable water being supplied by the Jal Sansthan in posh localities and terrible sanitary condition in Old City areas.

Mittal’s tour began from the posh locality of  Vishwas Khand and concluded at the Dargah Hazrat Abbas. It included areas of Hazratganj, Park Road, Medical College, Chowk, Chaupatiya, Kashmiri Mohalla, Tulsidas Marg,  Asharfabad Balda, Billauchpura, Tooriaganj, Sarkata Nullah and Hardoi Road. He was accompanied by Additional Municipal Commissioner Santosh Kumar on the inspection tour.

Residents, especially in the Old City areas of Dargah Hazrat Abbas, Kashmiri Mohalla and Chaupatiyan, complained to the commissioner about the problem of water, choked sewer and poor power situation. The Divisional Commissioner also called on the Jal Sansthan general manager at Dargah Hazrat Abbas, where the local residents had complained of poor water supply, choked sewer and dirty lanes. Mittal immediately ordered the Jal Sansthan officials to set up a water tank in Kashmiri Mohalla and construct a lane with interlocking tiles.

Mittal warned the officials against laxity in work and directed LMC officials to ensure proper cleaning in the non-serviced areas on priority during summer. He asked the residents to participate in the sanitation drive launched by LMC.

“Without public participation, we cannot win the fight against filth and epidemics in the city”.
