Mayor, deputy promise cleaner Shimla post victory in MC polls
Shimla: The newly elected Shimla mayor Kusum Sadret and deputy mayor Rakesh Kumar Sharma have assured the residents of Shimla of a cleaner city sans water woes.
Sadret said for the past several years water scarcity has been a major problem in Shimla, so they would focus on providing adequate and clean water to the city residents.
Sadret also added that she wants the residents of this city to coordinate with Shimla municipal corporation (SMC) by participating in its workings as their participation only will make the city smarter.
"We would work on providing all basic facilities to the residents," she added.
Sharma said they visited some areas of Shimla on Saturday to analyse the problems faced by people and most of them complained about water scarcity.
"We will inspect all the water sources of Shimla soon and will find out why expected water is not getting supplied to the town, there maybe problems in pumping, leakage or less water at the sources, and whatever be the reason they will sort that out immediately," he added.
"We will come up with some solution that will reduce vulnerability of workers to health risks."
He said they will join SMC on Tuesday by launching Swachhta Abhiyan in all 34 wards of the city at around 11am by cleaning the wards themselves.
