PAMPORE: Director Urban Local Bodies, Kashmir Riyaz Wani placed thirteen employees of Municipal Committee Pampore under suspension for their unauthorised absence from duties Thursday.
Wani was on a unscheduled visit to the office, when he found the staff absent.
“Basically I had come to check the sanitation which I found was not up to mark compelling me to visit the office,” Wani told Kashmir Reader.
Wani made an extensive tour of the Saffron town and took stock of ongoing developmental works.
The director expressed his displeasure over poor management of solid waste, and asked the executive officer of the municipality to improve the sanitation standards in Pampore immediately.
He also impressed upon the sanitation staff of Pampore Municipality to launch special drives along main drains, Srinagar-Jammu national highway and public places etc.
“They should work in double shifts in order to make the town clean” the director emphasized.
