Sirsa. The cleanliness drive launched by the city council was reduced to a fortnight. By the way, at the beginning of the campaign, it started growing. The campaign was started with the help of dera premi and other social organizations. Due to which formalization was done throughout the fortnight and now again the same situation has been created. Garbage-only-garbage has started appearing everywhere. The surprising thing is that most of the area of the city remained ignorant of this during the fortnight-long campaign. In areas where cleanliness has not been done for months, years, 10 years, the words of cleanliness campaign may not be heard even during the campaign. The status of those living in the trash remains the same even today. Actually, every year there is a gimmick of running a cleanliness campaign. No attention is paid to change the system. Everyone considers it only their duty to complete the formalities, Therefore, there is no change in the situation. Neither the number of sweepers in the city council is increased nor is the forced labor from the sweeper reduced. Cleaners are deployed more in the VIP area itself. The rest of the city is ignored at the administrative level itself. More than half of the city’s population would not have seen the cleaning workers for several years, but not for a month or two? The cleaning staff is given such a large area that it is not possible to clean the entire ward by a single person. In such a situation, the formalities of cleaning are completed in some areas, the remaining area remains deprived of it. If there is regular cleaning, there is no need for a cleanliness drive.

Slum settlements did not change picture
No matter how many cleanliness campaigns were carried out on paper, the condition of slum settlements in the city has never changed. In JJ Colony, Chattargadpatti, Singikat Mohalla and other Dalit settlements, there is no such thing as cleanliness. In these colonies, mere cleaning is done in the name of cleanliness. The unfortunate circumstances of these colonies tell the actions of the city council.
Even today, trash is thrown in the open
On behalf of the city council, neither dumping places have been set up in all the 31 wards of the city nor has the system of collecting garbage from house to house. That is, at the level of administration, people are forced to throw garbage in the open. The surprising thing is that the government has banned the burning of garbage and there is a provision for penalty on burning of garbage. Whereas the sanitary workers neither dump the waste nor burn it. Where does the garbage go then? Even vehicles collecting garbage from house to house do not go to all the streets. Then where do people in these streets throw household waste? There is talk of separate wet and dry waste from the city council, while in practice there is no arrangement for disposal of waste.
Debris piles on the bypass
While the city council has issued instructions for debris disposal, the debris is dumped in the surrounding area instead of being thrown away from the city. Debris piles are on the road connecting the city council to the mini bypass. In the direction in front of the CDLU and along the path leading to the Civil Hospital, people have dumped debris by dumping debris.
Cleaning, then garbage
People’s habit also remains old. Stay in the trash This is also the reason why dirt remains in the markets throughout the day. Cleaning is done by the cleaning workers early in the morning. Shopkeepers arrive after 8-9 pm. Clean up one by one and throw the waste of the shop on the road. This garbage would spread with air sometimes here and sometimes there. The waste is cleaned the next day in the morning and after some time, the garbage is spread again.
Cleanliness campaign in Sirsa, sitting in froth, fortnightly formality, then same situation, garbage everywhere
