CM wants Chhat ghats to look spick and span

New Delhi, Nov 17, 2012, DHNS:

Chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday instructed chief secretary P K Tripathi to contact all the municipal commissioners and ensure proper cleanliness and sanitation at Chhat ghats.

Dikshit has asked the chief secretary to continuously keep in touch with commissioners as cleanliness is essential at the ghats where large number of devotees will be assembling to perform religious puja, said her parliamentary secretary Mukesh Sharma.
“Also, keeping in view the onslaught of dengue , it is imperative to maintain highest level of cleanliness,” said Sharma.

He added that chief secretary has told the commissioners to deploy adequate number of staff for this purpose.

Arrangements

With the Chhat puja being just round the corner, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation Mayor Mira Aggarwal took stock of the arrangements at various ghats on river Yamuna.
The mayor, along with other senior functionaries of the corporation, visited the Kudesia
Ghat at Kashmere Gate and Ram Ghat at Wazirabad.

She directed the officials to arrange special tents for providing facilities to women for changing clothes.

The North Corporation is levelling the ghats and cleaning them. Toilet blocks and mobile dispensaries for devotees have also been put in place.

“Since Chhat is an important festival for Poorvanchalis who celebrate it with much enthusiasm and great fervor, it must be ensured that they do not face any inconvenience while offering prayers,” Aggarwal said.

The mayor added that she has directed the officials concerned to review the situation on the bank of the Western Yamuna canal passing through areas such like Pitampura, Shalimar Bagh and Ashok Vihar in north-west Delhi.
