According to the latest reports, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has tasked all war rooms in the COVID-19 ward to address other important issues in Mumbai apart from that of coronavirus.
In light of this, based on the stories, residents can express their displeasure to their respective war rooms regarding the problems in the area of solid health waste management, fumigation and sewer cleaning.
The aim of the said decision would be to solve the problems of each district at their respective levels, the accounts noted. Speculation can be made that the said resolution was prompted by the fact that the number of COVID-19 cases in Mumbai is on the decline.
This is in addition to the fact that citizens do not know where to express their problems. Additional City Commissioner Suresh Kakani was quoted in stories explaining how they appreciate the work being done by the War Room staff in the ward.
Inspired by this, they are now looking to continue the same activity in solving non-coronavirus issues by helping them reach the required departments.
Kakani in the stories further explained that they had come up with this initiative since before COVID they had received many complaints about the lack of a hotline where complaints could be lodged.
He believes that because there is already a decentralized system in place, he will continue on the path to success and accessibility, according to reports cited. In April 2021, ward-dedicated War Rooms were opened to help residents meet COVID-19 bed or ambulance needs.
