‘Swachh Guwahati Squad’ to name and shame those littering, urinating and spitting at public places
The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) in a positive step is planning to form a special unit -- Swachh Guwahati Squad -- which will act to stop littering, urinating and spitting at public places. This squad will also be checking on those who throw garbage at public places.
“All 58 NGOs who are already working with us will provide 2 persons each for this drive. These 116 personnel will be trained on how to tackle the situation in all the respective wards,” GMC Commissioner Monalisa Goswami told G-Plus.
The offenders will be penalised if found guilty. The amount of penalty has not been decided yet. It will be shared between the persons collecting the fine and the GMC.
The Commissioner revealed that the squad will start working from the first week of June 2018.
