Mangaluru: ‘Get the Junk Vehicles Out of the Premises’-DC Ibrahim tells Govt Officials

Mangaluru:  Couple of months ago, DC AB Ibrahim had ordered the removal of all old/junk vehicles sitting in most of the government department parking lot/premises- but my visit to some of these government office complexes yesterday show that DCs orders have not been taken very seriously. This report exposes the oft-ignored filth that is omnipresent in almost every government office in India, including Karnataka, and for that matter, Mangalore too. Garbage and junk vehicles welcome you at the first sight when you enter some of the government offices in town.

Just have a glimpse behind the some of the government offices in the city-like the PWD building, Panchayat Office, and also MCC building-due to heavy rains, stinking stagnant water has collected giving scope for mosquito breeding and it has been like that for weeks-and our officials are talking about preventing malaria and dengue, when they themselves can’t keep their premises clean. I only hope this article one of these days would open the eyes of our Sarkari Babus at various government offices to maintain cleanliness, instead of just filling their pockets?

Apart from filth scattered all over the area, the surrounding around some of these government buildings look like a museums, with “antique?” broken down vehicles, and furniture lying all over. There are cars, jeeps, vans-all broken and lying all over the place. Why can’t the department get rid of them for scrap, and earn some income, instead of letting them rot on the compound, and expose a dirty picture. Why would the officials care, after all it was a tax payers money that bought these vehicles.

In conclusion, I really don’t know whether my message through this article will reach the concerned authorities at PWD, MCC and others, and if it did, I earnestly request them to rectify the “dirty” situation around their premises. Surprise me Dear Saars/Saabs ! Next time I visit your premises I should be astonished to see the difference- CLEAN, is the word! If you make up your mind, I think you can make a difference. Please get rid of those junk vehicles-Period!

  1. Excellent report by Alfie and team. This is a good example of journalistic reporting . Instead of the run-of -the- mill “breaking news” syndrome suffered by most present day journalists who are looking for instant fame, instead of researching and presenting their articles on their own steam!
