Siddipet: Finance Minister T Harish Rao on Monday instructed civic officials in Siddipet to strictly monitor people who dumping waste on the roadside by going through CCTV footage.

Expressing his ire on seeing waste dumped on the roadside at Parupally area in 6th ward of the Municipality during his visit to the town, Rao instructed the officials to initiate stern action against people who dumped waste though they have put a perfect mechanism in place to collect wet and dry garbage on a regular basis.

The Minister said he wanted to see more change among the citizens to make the town clean and hygienic.

Earlier, Rao went around the town to monitor the garbage collection activity in the colonies. He showed workers on how to segregate wet and dry garbage. After noticing a woman dumping vegetables and leftover food in the dry garbage bin, Rao sensitised her on what exactly dry and wet garbage means.

He also underlined the importance of segregating garbage at doorstep, which would help them to restrict the garbage reaching dump yards. When he noticed stored water in some containers in the 6th ward, Rao called upon the citizens to clean the houses every Sunday at 10 am so that they can keep their own houses clean and hygienic which eventually would control breeding of mosquitoes, flies and also diseases. The Minister instructed the civic authorities to do regular spraying and fogging to control the mosquito menace during the rainy season. He has also suggested them to avoid any stagnation of rainwater, which would turn as breeding grounds for Mosquitos.
