Prime Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has asked the mayors, deputy mayors and chairmen elected to the city’s local authorities not to make any effort to serve the people.
At the closing ceremony of the two-day workshop here on Thursday, Jagan Mohan Reddy asked them to take into account the immense responsibility that the people had assumed by voting with a huge mandate.
The Prime Minister said the focus should be on raising awareness of sanitation and implementing sanitary practices in the urban areas.
He said the “Clean Andhra Pradesh” (CLAP) initiative would be launched with the aim of making all urban areas clean through various measures.
Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy said the government had sourced over 8,000 automatic trucks and assigned two trucks to each station for door-to-door garbage collection, which would begin on July 8 as part of the initiative.
He said steps had been taken to raise awareness of the need to separate waste at source for better solid waste management. He said the government has decided to set up processing dry and wet garbage and sewage treatment plants for sewage treatment.
He said the government had spent over £ 1 on the good of the people through various programs. He said the government is developing smart cities for affordable and dignified living for middle-income groups. He called on elected representatives to work towards strengthening the systems and system of service delivery at the grassroots level.
Among other things, the Minister for City Administration and Urban Development Botcha Satyaranayana was present.
