The city administration is finding it difficult to keep the holy city clean, despite making all efforts. More than five dozens cleaners have been engaged to keep the Parikrama Marg clean. Illegal encroachments around the kunds will also be removed recently.
Last week National Green Tribunal (NGT) has imposed a total fine of 11 lac rupees on DM Rajesh Kumar, State Pollution Control Board and on the EO of Vrindavan Municipal Corporation for showing negligence towards the city cleanliness. As a result, the city administration has deployed more than five dozen cleaners with the help of the Ujjwal Braj organisation. These cleaners along with others from Municipal Corporation have been cleaning the Parikrama Maarg from Keshi Ghat to Raman Reti.
City Magistrate Ram Araj Yadav and Deputy Collector Garima Singh inspected the cleanliness drive in the areas of Telipada, Sringar Bat, Har Milap, Mirzapur Dharamshala and Parikrama Marg, as well as other areas. They also instructed the cleaning staff on how they can improve their work. The City Magistrate said that the cleanliness drive with be regularised within three to four days. They were also accompanied by Sanitary Inspector Awadhesh Yadav.
