The GHMC, yesterday launched a special sanitation drive in Hyderabad.
Hyderabad | 19th April 2021
The largest civic body in Telangana, the GHMC, yesterday launched a special sanitation drive in Hyderabad in an attempt to mitigate the chance of the spread of any diseases due to the garbage accumulated in many areas of the capital.

The drive was launched after Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao asked the GHMC to take up a four-day long sanitation program to clear the garbage in the city.

Reports say that 18,000 sanitary workers have been working to collect, lift and transfer the refuse from different parts of Hyderabad since yesterday.

Sanitation workers and officials in all 30 circles have been involved in the program. Additional vehicles, dumpers and tippers are also being used.

Meanwhile, the staff of the GHMC's Disaster Response Force has been spraying sodium hypochlorite solution on all
the busy roads in the Greater Hyderabad area.

This is an important initiative since the state's hospitals are fast becoming overcrowded with Covid-19 patients.

As part of the drive, GHMC mayor Gadwal Vijayalakshmi urged the residents not to throw litter onto the roads, and to dump them in the collection vehicles instead.

In another part of the city, Cyberabad Commissioner of Police V C Sajjanar today launched the free 'Last Ride Services' that will run within the limits of the Commissionerate.

The service is a free-of-cost one that will help bereaved families in the area transport the mortal remains of the deceased. Residents will be able to use the service between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

Speaking on the occasion, the CP said the the services would also take care of cremations or other funeral ceremonies of any deceased whose families were unable to take care of the last rights.

Citizens can avail themselves of the service by calling 7995404040 or 9490617440.
