Lack of coordination among line depts leading to chaos

By City Correspondent

GUWAHATI, Aug 11 - Lack of coordination among line departments of Kamrup Metro district administration is leading to mismanagement during the Shravani Mela or Bolbom festival.

This was revealed by some official documents of the district administration. The documents also revealed that the officials concerned were aware of the probability of such a situation emerging, but, unfortunately, they were reluctant to take timely and effective steps.

This time, the garbage thrown by the devotees in the stretch of road from the Basistha temple to the Sukreswar temple has been the main concern for the district administration as the littering nullified the efforts of the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) to keep the city clean.

Meanwhile, some documents revealed that on July 22, the official concerned of the district administration sent a letter to the GMC commissioner with a request to place adequate number of dustbins in the premises of both Basistha and Sukreswar temples and on the road leading to both these places of worship. The letter specifically mentioned that materials made of plastic were used by the devotees during the Shravani Mela.

However, locals alleged that it was the GMC which did not place extra number of dustbins to manage the excess waste, creating immense problems for the public.

Now, the district administration has formed a special task force to manage the flow of devotees in the ongoing festival.

A statement of the district administration stated that the task force will keep strict vigil in the maintenance of cleanliness and distribution of food items during the Mela. For this purpose, the administration has divided the stretch of road between the two temples into 11 different zones.
