Mayor Asha Lakra talks in online meeting.
- If the city commissioner does wrong, he will stop at any cost: Mayor
- All public works are being done, no dispute: MC
The virtual meeting of the Municipal Corporation was held on Thursday. In this too there was a conflict between the Mayor and the Municipal Commissioner. The Mayor directed to buy one thousand oxygen cylinders including two ambulances, two dead bodies. On this, the Municipal Commissioner said that the corporation does not have a place to keep oxygen cylinders. Immediately after the meeting, the Mayor sent a letter to the Municipal Commissioner directing him to make purchases and said that the place would be made available. Describing the plight of the city, the councilors pleaded for removal of CDC and Jonta Company, which took the contract for cleaning.
The mayor directed to deploy additional staff to remove the water logging. Here, Municipal Commissioner, Mukesh Kumar said that making Ranchi clean is my first task. The cleaning company has been instructed to improve the work. The team of the corporation itself is engaged in this. Whatever problems the councilors come up with, they try to solve them. Tender is also going on for construction of road-drain with the available funds. Everything is being done according to the rules. No dispute with anyone.
Will not let the public’s tax money go to waste
The Mayor-Municipal Commissioner has different powers, which is derived from the Municipality Act. There is no dispute with the Municipal Commissioner, but if they do wrong, they will stop at any cost. We will not allow public tax money to be wasted. With the funds of the 15th Finance Commission, pavers blocks are to be installed in the streets, but the Municipal Commissioners were engaged in spending on the road of NH and road construction. That’s why a complaint has been made to the Union Minister in Delhi.
The basic work of Municipal Corporation is not being done in a clean manner
The ongoing dispute between the city government has thrown the entire capital into disarray. Even if the basic work of the Municipal Corporation is not being done in a clean manner, far from taking the big plans on the ground. Dainik Bhaskar spoke to 15 councilors on this issue, then told that the development of the city came to a standstill due to the dispute that broke out in the corporation.
Garbage is not being collected from 50% of the houses, how is the company
The councilors said that last December, the CDC company was given the contract for cleaning in all 53 wards on outsourcing, but even 50% of the houses are not collecting garbage. The contract was awarded to Jonta Company for transporting the garbage to Jhiri Dumping Yard. The company has to install 233 dustbins at 75 places, but where and when will it be.
Common people come to the councilors with problems. The councilors keep their point in the meeting of the corporation board itself. If the meeting is not held for five months then no one will listen to the problem.
– Arun Jha, Councilor, Ward-26
The Municipal Corporation has now become a battle ground. If he told the problem to the Municipal Commissioner, he assured to build a road-big drain. Not working like before.
Omprakash, Councilor, Ward 27
The people above are adopting all the gimmicks for their own benefit, but the public is getting crushed in it. No work has been done on the earlier decision, what answer should the councilors give to the people.
