Hussain visits DPCC office, finds irregularities and absentee staff
NEW DELHI: Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain made a surprise visit to the office of Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) on Thursday and found that the records have not been maintained properly.
Hussain also saw that many staffs of the office were absent without any justified reason.
"The Minister found that the records are not maintained properly and some officers could not give a justification," said officials of the Environment Department.
They added that despite it being a weekday, many officials were found to be absent during working hours and could not justify their absence. The Minister is likely to take strong actions against these people.
"I always keep a note of every complaint against the offices and officers in my department" said Hussain, adding that, these visits will be continued and any corruption or irregularities will not be tolerated.
Thursday's visit comes a day after the Minister's inspection of fair price shops (FPS) in the Mangolpuri area. Hussain had, on Wednesday, suspended tje licenses of two FPSs in Mangolpuri area and registered an FIR against another.
"I received a lot of complaints against these shop owners and when I visited, I found that it is true. When the local women complained that these people misbehave with them, I informed the officials that I will visit the place immediately," Hussain said.
Talking to Millennium Post, the Minister assured the citizens, saying: "Apart from regular scrutiny, if any serious complaint comes, then the department will immediately take action."
Hussain explained that he has directed all officials of his department to keep note of all complains coming from normal people and even the other officers.
During Thursday's visit, he was accompanied by senior officials of his department, so that all records could be studied properly.
