Jamshedpur: Adityapur Municipal Corporation is all set to complete the cleaning of drains before the onset of monsoon in Jharkhand. The work of cleaning the drains began on both sides of the Adityapur main road today.
According to Amit Singh, Deputy Mayor of AMC, all major nullahs and drains of Adityapur have been earmarked for cleaning work which would be completed before the rains start.
Sources said the drains from Akashvani to NIT Jamshedpur were clogged for the last many years. As a result, the main road was filled with sewage water, garbage and rainwater. The clogging was caused mostly by dumping of plastic and other waste on the drains and roadsides, sources said.
