Hyderabad: Making the sanitation campaign sustainable, and not just a one-day affair, setting up an organised grievance redressal system in sync with new media, convergence with various departments and clearing pending files top the priority list of GHMC’s new commissioner B. Janardhan Reddy, who took charge on Saturday.
The commissioner has ordered that all officers’ tables should have three stickers ‘I love my job’, ‘Act now and speak with respect’ and ‘put an end to red-tapism’. Quality work can be extracted if an employee is willing to work, Mr Janardhan Reddy said.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Mr Janardhan Reddy said, “With the GHMC being a large department, coordination with all other state agencies is most important. Involving communities in executing civic projects is essential.”
Asked about the 1,000-km BT roads and 400-km of white-topping which the Chief Minister had announced, Mr Janardhan Reddy said, “Road repairs will be taken up with modern machines and citizens will be invited to give their suggestions. A separate cell will be set up for the purpose. The roads projects will be completed in a month as per the CM’s directions.”
He said metropolitan cities are largely dependent on good sanitation, especially lifting of garbage.
“The two types of waste, wet and dry, can be segregated at the household level only. Twin bins will be distributed in the first week of November along with the 2,500 auto tippers,” he said.
