Ghaziabad: Six new private firms will take over the city’s cleaning work Gurgaon News

GURGAON: Six private agencies contracted to provide sanitation services and manpower in the city will start their work from Thursday. Earlier, the tenure of seven agencies expired on November 30 last year. Previous agencies were later extended as stopgap arrangements.
MCG Joint Commissioner Naresh Kumar said, “The new agencies will start their work from Thursday.
Complaints of garbage lying on roads and dumping on vacant plots have seen an increase in the past few weeks. Citizens are hopeful that the city will become clean and free from garbage after the agencies start working.
“We hope that when the new agencies start their work, the filth and garbage across the city will be picked up. The sanitation workers were not working efficiently due to the termination of the contracts of the previous firms. Garbage piles were seen all over the city from 2016. Moreover, collection of waste from houses is another concern that the MCG should address,” said Shrey Sharma, a resident of Sector 46.
MCG’s contract with companies is based on sanitation provided in these areas, irrespective of the number of manpower deployed. Sanitation workers, who were employed by previous agencies, have opposed the contract because they say it has put them out of work. They took out a rally from the old MCG office to Sudheeshwar Chowk and raised slogans against the civic body.
“MCG’s decision to assign work to private companies based on areas has left many sanitation workers unemployed instead of manpower. MCG should withdraw the tender and adjust the contract in favor of sanitation workers. It should be done,” said Naresh Malkat, state secretary of Nagar Palika Karamchari Singh.
