A cleaner and greener Gurgaon, where pollution levels are within permissible limits, is the goal of newly elected deputy mayor Sunita Yadav
Yadav, who is into her second term as a councillor, was elected on a BJP ticket. She understands the nitty gritty of urban governance and her priority is to ensure that the Bandhwari waste treatment plant becomes functional at the earliest. Yadav is also batting for the implementation of an effective waste collection and segregation system. “There is too much dust pollution in this city and it is killing us. There is a need to set up systems to prevent pollution. We also need to enhance our punlic transport system, particularly the bus service, in order to cut vehicular pollution,” Yadav said.
“Getting the city bus service launched will be an important step in checking pollution as it will reduce the number of private vehicles and noxious fume-emitting diesel autorickshaws,” Yadav said.
“The plans to start a city bus service, set up a waste to power generation plant, afforestation, and install a construction waste treatment plant are on the MCG agenda since the last one year. We will discuss these plans with officials, understand their viability and take it up with the government,” Yadav said.
Since all three top posts in the corporation have been won by women, Yadav said it becomes imperative for them to ensure that women feel secure on city roads, in markets and even inside their homes.
“We will work with the police and take steps to ensure that crimes against women are brought down. Be it installing CCTV cameras or installing streetlights, these will be taken up on priority,” she said.
