Call for strict monitoring of garbage disposal

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 21 � The huge amount of municipal solid waste generated in the city has become a big source for earning easy money for many corrupt officials of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) and the Guwahati Development Department (GDD), said Col P Choudhury, a pioneer in the methodical garbage management system in the city.

Col Choudhury called for urgent steps to strict monitoring of the garbage disposal system laying stress on engaging able-bodied people and those who have no interest in the organisations working for the management of garbage in the city.

Talking to this correspondent, Col Choudhury, a former colonel of the Indian Army who took part in many of the Army operations in different parts of the country, said that earlier the GMC used to spend around Rs 44 lakh per month for collection of garbage from the secondary sources like the roadside dustbins.

Now, he said, with a vague agreement, M/s Ramky Enviro Engineers Ltd, which has been engaged in private public partnership mode for the city�s garbage disposal of the city, has been provided with the scope to earn around Rs 80 lakh in a month for collecting garbage from the primary and the secondary sources. But the condition continued to worsen with filth strewn all along the city roads.

On the other hand, unscientific dumping of garbage has spoiled the Deepor Beel ecology and created new health problems for the people living in the western part of the city.

Ramky has been doing the same thing of earning money without performing its duties properly in Hyderabad too, Choudhury said referring to his experience in the south Indian city during a visit in June last. In this city, Ramky is engaged in collection of garbage from the secondary sources, Choudhury said.
