Digital Presence of UPCM, Helps in Cleaning of Sewage in Indirapuram
Social networking connects people across the world; in this particular incident, it led to action on a sewage issue of Indirapuram. It is a known fact that the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, is extremely active on social media platforms and hence it is very simple to get him to hear of your problems.
So, Ghaziabad-based social activist Alok Kumar, tweeted a photograph of overflowing sewage water in Ahimsa Khand II of Indirapuram, urging the chief minister to have a look at the pathetic state of civic amenities in the township.
Akhilesh Yadav immediately directed civic and administrative authorities in Ghaziabad on the same day to mitigate the problem of sewage overflow in Indirapuram.
Alok Kumar, president of the Federation of Apartment Owners’ Association (FedAOA) of Ghaziabad, had also filed a PIL in the Allahabad high court earlier this year over the issue of sewer overflow. The high court had issued an order on February 4, directing FedAOA members to jointly convene a meeting with GDA officials so that effective steps can be chalked out to solve the sewage overflow issue.
In an interview with Times of India, Alok said that – “The chief minister’s office (CMO) called up the district administration to take cognizance of the matter immediately. Subsequently, the administration has asked the Ghaziabad Development Authority and the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation to look into the issue of sewer overflow on a war footing”. And Ghaziabad district magistrate Vimal Kumar Sharma told TOI, ” Directions were issued to survey the entire network of sewer lines in the city so that the Trans-Hindon area doesn’t face any problem in the future”
The whole incidence entails the power of digital platform of networking sites and has also proved that Mr. Akhilesh Yadav has deployed his digital and social admiration to look into people’s concerns.
