Jamshedpur: Mango Notified Area Committee (MNAC) continued its cleanliness and anti-encroachment drive in Mango on Saturday. Many people found urinating at public places were fined. Those pasting stickers and posters at public places, parking their vehicles in no-parking areas and those throwing garbage on the road instead of disposing the same in dustbins were also fined on the occasion.
In most cases, a token fine amount of Rs 50 was collected from the violators. Several children and senior citizens were given first warning and requested to follow clean habits. A sum of Rs 3350 was collected from the violators.
Those urinating in the public were administered cleanliness oath and were made to declare in writing that they would not violate cleanliness norms at public places.
The special officer of MNAC Sanjay Kumar said the MNAC had built public urinals, but still many people found it more convenient to urinate in the open. He said behavioural changes should be made to ensure the success of Swachhata Abhiyan. He appealed to the people to cooperate with the MNAC officials in keeping Mango clean.
Among those present during the campaign included assistant engineer Roshan Ranjan, City Manager S Rehman, junior engineer Devesh Kumar, cleanliness supervisor Rajkumar Prasad, cleanliness inspector CC Goswami and local police officials.
