LAHORE The Lahore Waste Management Company (LW-MC) failed to keep the City clean on the eve of Eidul Azha due to poor arrangements, as wasted parts of sacrificial animals remained lying unattended in rubbish heaps and on roadside in most of the City localities, a survey conducted by TheNation revealed on Friday. It was witnessed that mostly containers placed in backward residential vicinities remained full of animal waste for hours during three days of Eid, which started omitting stench and the officials reached the spot late despite complaints, which caused massive nuisance for the people of such areas. However, sewerage system of a number of areas also got chalked due to offal thrown by the masses and could not be cleared by Wasa officials timely, which resulted in stagnation of water on the roads and caused irritation for the area people. On the other hand, the containers and dumpsters kept on major roads of the City and in posh areas were cleaned by the officials on priority basis on the special instructions of the authorities concerned. The officials also conducted insecticide spray at such dumping points of these areas after lifting animal waste and offal from these containers. In this regard, the SWM, WASA, TMAs, UC administrations and other concerned departments claimed remarkable arrangements across the City including lifting of waste and offal, cleaning of drains and sewerage, supply of potable water on emergency basis in case of shortage of water in any area of the City. Such concerned authorities also set up almost 250 complaint centers in 150 UCs of the City. They also hired 250 vehicles for emergency offal lifting besides more than 600 regular trucks of SWM and not less 150 vehicles of Wasa, which remained busy round the clock in waste lifting from across the City. Managing Director LWMC Wasim Ajmal Chaudhry and Managing Director Wasa Dr Javed Iqbal claimed that the given target was achieved successfully with the cooperation of people who informed the complaint centers timely about the sites full of offal and also due to the dutiful officials and sanitary workers of all the departments of City District Government. An official of SWM said the sanitary staff of the Company, Towns, Wasa and UCs had been put on red alert for three days as a joint venture and they accomplished their mission to clean the City by removing offal and waste successfully. Further, failure in obeying the provincial governments instructions in order to ensure proper arrangements of removal of animal waste from the residential vicinities of the City also caused suspension of three officials including AD Asif Naseer and chief sanitary inspector Northern City Wasim and MVI Allama Iqbal Town Sajid and dismissal of two officials including sanitary inspector Data Ganj Bukhsh Town Ali Raza and a driver of the same town on account of negligence in performing their duties. The SWM also issued show-cause notices to AD Data Ganj Bakhsh Town Muhsin Sadiq and AD Allama Iqbal Town Malik Khalil.
