Debate on A2Z ouster

A stormy discussion took place among Dhanbad Municipal Corporation (DMC) councillors over the civic bodyís decision to terminate A2Z Waste Management Private Limitedís contract for its shoddy performance during its board meeting at District Rural Development Authority auditorium on Thursday.

Councillors like Vinod Goswami and Mahesh Paswan argued that A2Z was not provided facilities like garbage dumping ground, land for establishment of processing units and hence could not be held responsible for poor sanitation work. ďThe cleaning agency should be given another chance,Ē Goswami said.

But councillors like Nirmal Kumar Mukherjee, Priyaranjan and Madan Mahto opposed, claiming that A2Z had failed to extend its service to all 55 wards as per the contract.

DMC chief executive officer Balmukund Jha, however, said that the decision could not be reversed.

He, however, accepted the the councillorsí demand to hire five contractual labourers for each of the 55 wards for February and March to look after the sanitation work until a new agency was appointed.

The labourers would be paid through municipal corporation fund.
