'Delhi will be like London, New York', says civic body Mayor Shelly Oberoi
Delhi Mayor Shelly Oberoi, speaking on the second day of the mega cleanliness campaign, said the city would be transformed into a clean and tidy city like London and New York.
On the second day of the mega cleanliness campaign, the Delhi Municipal Corporation (MCD) carried out cleaning in all 250 wards across the city.
Speaking about the drive 'Ab Delhi Hogi Saaf', Delhi Mayor Shelly Oberoi said, "BJP -- which controlled the city’s municipal body for 15 years -- did not clean any lane, ward or toilet. As a result, Delhi was flooded with litter that got converted into three big garbage mountains."
She said the mega cleanliness drive has been launched as part of the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) poll promise to make Delhi clean and beautiful.
Shelly Oberoi claimed "Delhi would be transformed into a clean and tidy city like London and New York".
This campaign is to make Delhi hygienic and bring proper order to the whole MCD administration, said the mayor.
The year-long campaign -- which would involve all MCD 250 wards -- would have teams of 3000 individuals.
ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN
As claimed by the municipal body, each team would inspect 50 lanes and if a team sees any garbage on the lane, it would upload it on the MCD app 311, after which, MCD workers would clean the points.
"All the councillors, MLAs, officials and employees, collectively we all would make Delhi neat and tidy, now all officials and deputy commissioners will be instructed to identify all the garbage points of the wards coming under their zone," said Shelly Oberoi.
There are a few vulnerable points throughout Delhi where people dump their garbage regularly and turn them into small peaks of garbage, these vulnerable points will be inspected and cleaned daily so that garbage doesn't get accumulated there," said added.
Leader of the House, Mukesh Goyal said people are being made aware of hygiene and its importance.
"The AAP, MCD councillors, MLAs, the mayor, and the deputy mayor, are going ward to ward so that we can educate the people and transform Delhi into a beautiful, neat and green city," said Mukesh Goyal.
