Dwarka teams up for its clean drive

To add teeth to the ‘Clean Dwarka and Green Dwarka’ campaign and make it more effective, the Association of Neighbourhood Ladies Get-together (ANHLGT) has decided to divide itself into groups for different sectors to take up cleaning of the sub-city. 

According to its president, Cicily Kodiyan, also a resident of Sheetal Vihar of Sector 23, each sector will be allotted a five-member team, which will coordinate with the association, the community and the civic agencies. She informed, “They will supervise the cleaning of their area in turns and submit reports at the meetings. Also, the team would visit the offices of civic agencies and update them about the ground situation, and seek their help for particular areas, if required.”

Work has already begun, informs Promila Malik, the additional secretary of ANHLGT, and a resident of Jagran Apartments of Sector 22.  She elaborates, “The teams have started working in Dwarka. We are making calls to SDMC officials and updating them regarding the sanitation situation of areas. We are also trying to create community awareness by organising meetings of RWAs and society committees in various sectors.”

She further adds, “We have already created the teams for Sectors 6, 9, 10, 12, 11, 22 and 23. For the rest, we are in the process of forming the teams. The point is to involve the community for cleanliness drives.”

Talking of progress made at Sector 6, Chitra Jain, a resident of Kamakshi Apartments there, and also a member of the ANHLGT, says, “Work has already begun and a lot of people are helping us, such as Romila Gandhi from True Friends Apartments, Madhu from Param Puneet Apartments and Vijay Goel from Skylark Apartments. We are constantly coordinating with people of the South Delhi Municipal Corporation.”

The teams have had meetings with the authorities as well for better coordination. “The first meeting was held in Gokul Garden, where we interacted with SDMC supervisors and former MLA and former municipal councilor, Rajesh Gahlot. We have provided the team leads with the names of the sanitary inspector and assistant sanitary inspector looking after their respective sectors,” briefed Kodiyan.

A delegation of the ANHLGT also met with the deputy commissioner of the zone, Garima Gupta, and spoke to her about the lack of execution in sanitation works across the sub-city.
