Jamshedpur: State Food Minister cum MLA of Jamshedpur West Saryu Rai paid a visit to his constituency on Saturday and took stock of the cleanliness scenario in different localities.
Rai visited Birsa Busti, Panchwati Nagar, Kunjnagar, Sidhu Kanhu Busti, North Layout and Gwala Busti and sought feedback from the residents about the civic amenities available to them and lapses on part of the local municipal body.
He was told that the drains were not regularly cleaned by the Notified Area staff concerned. As a result of this, the drains often get clogged, thus resulting in overflow of garbage and dirty water on roads, the residents told Rai.
Rai assured the residents that very soon arrangements would be made to clean the drains and keep them clear of garbage and filth on a regular basis. He asked the residents to not throw garbage in drains and appealed for their cooperation in keeping the drains clean.
Many BJP leaders were present during the ministerís visit. They included Mukul Mishra, Chunnu Bhumij, Virendra Singh, Shankar Rai, Ashok Singh, Budheshwar Karmakar, Reeta Singh and Raju Yadav.
