In the last few days, the workers in the GHMC sanitation and entomology wings had a packed schedule. Between October 15 and 19, the staff were kept on their toes due to work related to removal of debris from various water bodies after immersion of idols of goddess Durga, cleaning up the Tank Bund main road after Sunday Funday and the historical precinct of Charminar after the ‘Ek Shaam Charminar Ke Naam’ programme.

The removal of debris after immersion of goddess Durga idols on Dasara was carried out on Saturday, immediately followed by sanitation activities after the Sunday Funday programmes at Tank Bund and Charminar. On Tuesday, the workers were again deployed for the upkeep of areas where the Milad-un-Nabi processions were organised in the city.

Workers said their duties were challenging, especially in the last five days. B Vinay Kumar, site manager deployed by Ixora FM, the agency entrusted with the cleaning work at Charminar said he was nervous and equally excited.

“During festivals, Charminar and its vicinity were in the limelight. The ‘Ek Shaam Charminar Ke Naam’ was being held for the first time near the monument and all eyes were on the event. We had to put in maximum efforts to maintain the sanitation standards,” he said.

P Kousalaya, a sanitation worker deployed at the same site, echoed the same sentiment and added that their duties during festivals were challenging.

“In the last few days, the entomology workers were assisting sanitation workers. During the cleaning activities, they also took up fogging and anti-larval operations,” GHMC Chief Entomologist Ram Babu said.

Meanwhile, Dr Ravi Kanth, GHMC assistant medical officer of health, Jubilee Hills circle, said that during festivals besides routine works taken up to keep the city clean, they closely monitored the sanitation activities near religious places and procession routes.
