Mysuru, December 17:- Deputy Commissioner D Randeep called on former minister S A Ramadas and members of other organisations who are protesting against unscientific garbage dumping at Sewage farm at Excell. Ramadas and co are on indefinite since three days.
“The protest staged by Ramadas has social concerns. Of course, it has my support. It is our aim to make the city cleanest again. It is my personal opinion as well that several changes have to take place at Mysuru City Corporation and the Sewage farm. I held discussions with MCC officials to seek solutions for these problems,” he added.
“I have directed the officials to look into the possibility of scientific waste management. Only one unit of the nine waste management units are functioning and the remaining eight are under construction and one has completely stopped. It has the ability of managing only five metric tonnes of waste. I will visit other plants along with the officials before December 31,” he added.
“We are working towards developing these units at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore. It will be used to repair the units, appoint new labours and increase the capacity of the waste management units from five metric tonnes to 10 metric tonnes,” Randeep added. (MR/HN).
