BBMP’s Health Committee Chairperson Sashi Rekha Jayaram has urged BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana to suspend Vijay Anand, Assistant Engineer at Dharmaraya Swamy Temple Ward.

Speaking to reporters, she said the officer has failed to discharge his duties as mounds of garbage were seen in a few junctions in the ward. “It is the duty of the officials to keep the area clean. Every day, BBMP spends `1 crore  to keep the city clean. But the garbage on streets show the level of commitment among the officers. A strong message needs to sent out by taking action,” she said.

The committee members visited many ward offices and also areas under different wards on Sunday.

The committee also inspected Jeevanbimanagar, Ulsoor, Bharathi Nagar and Shivajinagar wards and found that there were no higher officials  to monitor pourakarmikas engaged in garbage disposal.

“Officials  want positions in Major Works, Town Planning and other departments and do not work in solid waste management department,” she said.
