Mangaluru: Outsourced civic workers’ protest - Garbage collection comes to halt in city

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Mar 19: Garbage collection has stopped in the city for the last six days as the outsourced civic workers of Karnataka are holding protests in Bengaluru urging the government to implement direct payment of their salaries.

As a result of the strike, garbage is lying all over the city in heaps on roadsides and near the houses. Usually garbage is cleared in all wards everyday. Due to the strike, huge garbage has piled up and is lying unattended and stinking near hotels and apartments.

STP operators and underground drainage workers are also partaking in the protest and the underground drainage system has begun to create inconvenience.

Wetwells and STPs are not being operated. So many wet wells and STPs in the city have got blocked. This has increased pressure on manholes in many areas and the sewage has started leaking on the road.

    Waste management cess increased every year by 15% should be paid even an apartment/house is unoccupied. Where is the money going ? That is one side story - on the other hand Anthony Waste Management should reach each designated official's commission if the requisition needs to be signed for further action. Additionally elected member's hands need to be greaced. Enjoy people.. Certral, State, Municipal, Town, Gram all levels government is BJP.

    This incident shows the lack of preparedness on part of MCC. Our Corporator Shobha Poojary does not pick the phone, Health Inspector Jayashankar says he has "other work" and cannot visit our ward. This is the fate of Smart City called Mangalore.

    This is the outrage of poorly paid contract pourkarmika workers who are not paid their measly salaries for months together despite the corporation collecting their dues from the public in time, without fail! Due to absence of any social security or retirement benefits, these workmen have a very very bleak future! Soon, as per news reports, the RTC workers are planning a statewide strike which will paralyze the entire public transportation service in the state! With only about 10-15% of the work force in the various segments liable for pension fund etc, the future of those working in the daily wages and unregulated sector looks extremely worrying and precarious!!

    Just imagine the fate of Mangaluru city, once fully implemented or declared as smart city. Corruption, irresponsibility and carefree attitude is ruling in every nook & corner of our Civic society. Chaltha hai attitude.

    Have a hire and fire policy for all, including outsourced workers, govt and semi govt and municipal workers. Things will improve.
