Seeing the worsening situation & outbreak of Vector Borne diseases like Dengue and Chikungunya in Dwarka; Dwarka Forum took a lead and joined hands with SDMC. Members of forum met DC Najafgarh Sh Sanjeev Kumar today at Sec-23 Community Hall, Dwarka and demanded focus on fogging in schools, DDA Pockets and Group Housing societies on priority, segregation to reduce load on landfills, requested for efficient garbage pick-up and emphasized on decentralised composting.
Dwarka Forum members apprised Sh. Sanjeev Kumar regarding all the points and their present status of all the action points which were discussed during previous meetings.
Dwarka Forum demanded a road map of garbage pick-up trucks so that it can be optimized for maximum output. At the same time, forum asked DC to help with providing dustbins-carts for the societies near dhalao to reduce burden on trucks.
Both Dwarka Forum and DC agreed that all the dhalaos should work as composting sites and MCD should only pick segregated garbage from the society as per MCD’s new notification on garbage segregation. However, Dwarka Forum pressed that MCD should provide support to the forum to educate all societies in Dwarka and provide RWAs with all kind of assistance they require to initiate segregation and composting at source.
Dwarka Forum has been visiting societies of Dwarka to help RWAs and residents adopt the segregation and composting techniques. So far, few societies have already adopted the model and have zero garbage to dispose.
On the request of a member, DC also assured installation of limited open Gyms in MCD parks. He asked forum to identify parks.
DC Sh Sanjeev Kumar assured Dwarka Forum for all possible support and corrective measurements to control Dengue and chikungunya and also for proper disposal of garbage.
