Arunachal MLA unhappy over Itanagar being ranked 7th among 10 dirtiest cities in India

ITANAGAR | AUG 22, 2020:

Arunachal MLA Techi Kaso has expressed his unhappiness over Itanagar being ranked 7th among the 10 dirtiest cities in the country under the below 10 lakh population category in the Swachh Survekshan-2020.

Kaso said, "There are some official issues because of which the functioning of the Itanagar Municipal Council (IMC) has been affected."

He pointed out that the reason for Itanagar being ranked as the 7th dirtiest city comes after the staff of IMC did not receive salaries. There is a shortage of funds to pay for fuel for the garbage collection trucks.

"I have raised the concern with the authorities over various issues concerning the IMC. Hopefully, the situation will improve," Kaso said.

Garbage collection in Itanagar is affected during the monsoon because of bad road conditions, he added.
