Strategy for civic body meeting

Councillors of Dhanbad Municipal Corporation met on Friday to discuss their strategy ahead of the civic body’s crucial board meeting scheduled on Saturday.

The meeting, chaired by Rustam Ansari — president of the councillors’ association Parshad Ekta Manch — was held at the office of ward No. 24 councillor Ashok Pal. Some of the issues that were discussed were defunct streetlights and high-mast lights, solid waste management project, incomplete BPL and APL lists, and 27 per cent dearness allowance for third and fourth grade staff.

“We want all streetlights and high-mast lights to be repaired before Durga Puja. We will suggest that CFL lights be used to save energy besides supporting the proposal of providing 27 per cent dearness allowance to third and fourth grade employees of the corporation. Employees of Ranchi Municipal Corporation already get this monetary benefit,” said Pal.

He added that they also agreed to raise the demand of holding meetings of the board on a fixed date every month instead of doing so after 4 to 6 months. “We will also place the demand of prolonging the meeting’s duration to two-three days instead of the current practice of deliberating for 3-4 hours on a single day,” said Andari.

The meeting was also attended by councillor of ward No. 20 Imtiyaz Khan, councillor of ward No. 40 Jay Kumar, Ashok Yadav (ward No. 15), Prafulla Mandal (ward No. 25) and Priyaranjan (ward No. 23).
