MCG undertakes beautification drive of public toilets and spaces
Gurugram: The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) has begun the preparations for better ranking in the cleanliness survey that is going to be held in the first week of January.
Under this initiative, the municipal body has started cooperating with various artists to beautify the public spaces and toilets in the city.
There are over 150 public toilets that have been opened by the MCG. There have been complaints for long that like other washrooms, the public toilets in Gurgram too are not well maintained and therefore, most of the people avoid using it.
A major problem of lack of public toilets is faced by women. It's unfortunate that even as there have been certain toilets that have built by the residential and market societies in the city, no attention has been paid towards building women toilets. Most of the toilets that have been built are locked or dysfunctional," said Rahul Kapoor, a city resident.
In 2018, Gurugram marginally improved its ranking from 112 positions to securing the 107th position in the cleanliness survey conducted by the Government of India this year.
Scepticism, however, still persists among residents of the city who feel the city is still not clean and have not been able to find an effective solution to the garbage problem that continues to raise the stench.
