Public Hearing on Sanitation
19 March 2008
Sanitation is one of the major issues that Bawana has faced since the eviction of the residents in 2004. Keeping in view of the problems, Jagori Mahila Nagrik Hak Nigrani Samiti organised a Public Hearing on the issue of sanitation and how women and children are facing problems due to it.
One of the residents of Bawana stated that the government has opened Sulabh toilets in the locality for which each family has to pay 10 to 15 Rupees everyday. He exclaimed that they cannot afford one meal a day, how can they spend on toilets? Hence the people have no option rather than to use the streets for bathing and latrine.
The area superintendent present in the meeting regretted about the condition and blamed the localites on not co-operating with the MCD officials. He suggested to have another public hearing with the higher officials.
The authorities and the people of Bawana came out with certain suggestions to maintain a clean and safe environment in the area.
The residents should keep a check on the authorities and be in regular contact with the officials.
The Public Hearing provided a platform to the Bawana inhabitant s to meet the authorities on a one to one to basis. It helped them in addressing their problems and find efficient solutions for the same.
It was also a podium to recognise their rights and how they can stand for them and fight against any injustices.
The sanitation issues have been efficiently taken into consideration by the authorities and effective steps have been taken in this regard.
Jagori members also keep a check and take actions if any discrepancy is noticed.
