File case against officers if complaint not resolved within 48 hours: Kaushik
Urban Development minister Madan Kaushik pulled up departmental officials and directed the Haridwar district magistrate to get the problems resolved within two days, failing which FIRs should be lodged against senior officers of the department concerned.
Kaushik chaired a meeting with officials of various department regarding supply of contaminated drinking water and other problems on Sunday. Officials of Jal Sansthan, Peyjal Nigam, AMRUT and other departments concerned were present in the meeting. The minister pulled up the officials pointing out the frequency of leakage and failure of departments to resolve issues even after receiving complaints. He said that if the problem is not resolved within 48 hours of the complaint, a case should be filed against the top officers of the department concerned. He said that to prevent contaminated water supply, connections should be made to the new line so that the problem can be resolved permanently. Significantly, complaints of contaminated water supply are being made consistently in Haridwar. Leakage in supply lines and overflowing sewers are common complaints being made by residents. The minister directed the Haridwar district magistrate C Ravi Shankar to ensure coordination among the departments so that the necessary action is taken without delay.
