By Express press service

NEW DELHI: The AAP has written a letter to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena asking for time to discuss ways to keep the city clean and litter free. Addressing a press conference, party leader and MCD official Durgesh Pathak said increasing mountains of waste in landfills and Delhi’s cleanliness and sanitation are serious issues that require in-depth dialogue and discussion.

“The party has a number of suggestions for MCD’s primary responsibility for waste management and sanitation that could be a game-changer. I hope LG will save some time to tell us about the same,” he said. He hopes LG and the government will join hands and work together for the progress of Delhi, with effective coordination to make the city a better place.

“I wrote a letter to LG regarding MCD’s most important responsibility which is to keep Delhi clean, and urged them to meet,” he said. While noting that Delhi ranked very poorly in the Swachhta survey conducted by the central government, he said they had many suggestions to improve the condition of the city.

“My team and I have been working on these solutions for the past three years, researching ways nationally and internationally for better waste management and cleanliness systems, developing various plans and case studies of successful models,” said he declared.
