He suggested dustbins should be placed in each market and entrance of each residential society in the city
Even as the Noida Authority is leaving no stone unturned for good ranking in Swachh Survekshan 2020, opinions and suggestions are pouring in from all quarters for the beautification of the city. One resident has come up with a bold suggestion that could not find favour with some well meaning people. He wants signages of local political leader, private schools, hospitals etc., especially on the intersections, removed along with posters and handbills.
In a letter to Ritu Maheshwari, Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority, Dharmendra Sharma, a resident of Sector 34, wrote that these billboards mar the beauty of the city's landscape. He even suggested heavy penalty on those who put up these banners and billboards where they are not supposed to be.
Acknowledging the work of the CEO, Sharma said that her takeover was a positive sign for the Noida as she is the one who elevated the standards of hygiene in the city. Nevertheless, he went on, “I would like to give some suggestions to improve sanitation and add to the beauty of the city further."
Another key suggestion made by Sharma to improve the ranking in the cleanliness survey was that the cleanliness drive on all the main roads should be carried out at night considering that these roads remain busy throughout the day and hence it's impossible to carry out the drive on them during the rush hours.
He suggested dustbins should be placed in each market and entrance of each residential society in the city so that people do not litter the streets with chocolate wrappers or water bottle, etc. Shopkeepers in all the markets should be asked to install signboards of same colour.
He concluded with a suggestion to impose penalty on litterbugs not only at public places but also in residential areas.
A copy of suggestions has been submitted to the Noida Authority
