Appointment of 300 more sanitary workers demanded
‘Sanitary staff being paid once in three or four months'
Health conscious:CITU functionaries clearing the piled up garbage at Masapet slum in Kadapa on Tuesday. —
KADAPA: Communist Party of India (Marxist) district executive member N. Ravisankar Reddy and CITU city committee activists offered ‘shramdan' at Masapet slum area here on Tuesday and cleared the piled up garbage.
Insanitation was rampant at Masapet and several areas in Kadapa city, where garbage heaps piled up with Municipal Corporation workers not clearing them, drains choked and overflowed and potholes on the roads not repaired, leading to water stagnation endangering public health, Mr. Ravisankar Reddy said. The Municipal Corporation faced shortage of sanitary workers, but officials were not appointing them, he said.
Protesting the indifferent attitude of the officials concerned in upkeep of sanitation and safeguarding of public health, CITU members offered ‘shramdan', he stated. CITU city general secretary B. Manohar said nearly 300 more sanitation workers were necessary. Those already working were being paid salaries once in three to four months, he lamented.
Demanding that Kadapa Municipal Corporation officials engage requisite number of sanitary workers, he warned them of a protest as part of which they would dump the garbage heaps in front of the corporation office.
