[Chd,Pb] Punjab to be Open Defecation free by July,2018,Sidhu
:Where there is cleanliness, there is health.” These views were expressed by the Local Government Minister, Punjab, Navjot Singh Sidhu today at Punjab Municipal Bhawan on the occasion of a regional workshop on ‘Star Rating of Garbage Free Cities’
Minister Sidhu said that the Punjab Government under the visionary guidance of Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh is whole heartedly devoted to the task of generating awareness with regard to the environmental as well as hygiene issues besides taking ample measures to make sure that the vision materializes into reality. He elaborated that during the Swachh Sarvekshan in 2017 a total of 438 cities were examined on various parameters pertaining to cleanliness and Punjab was among the most lowly ranked i.e. no city of the state was within first 100 cities ..many of its cities received ranking between 400-438 but after the present Government took over the reins of the state and undertook with missionary zeal the task of making the state count on various cleanliness standards, the ranking of Punjab is expected to see a drastic improvement in Swachh Sarvekshan-2018. As of now more than 30 of its ULBs are in top-100 amongst 4041 ulbs across the country in dynamic rankings of cities based on swachhtaapp.

The minister further added that the concept of Garbage Free Cities is very closely linked with the Swachh Bharat Mission and exhorted all to devote themselves wholeheartedly to ensure that Punjab emerges at the top on the criteria of cleanliness and healthy environment. The minister also said that Punjab has made great strides in eradicating the menace of Open Defecation from the state and assured that by July, 2018 the state would be completely Open Defecation Free (ODF). .
On the occasion, the CEO of Punjab Municipal Infrastructure Development Company . Ajoy Sharma threw light on the steps being initiated by the department in making Punjab free from open defecation as well as providing individual toilets in the households to save environment from getting polluted.
Sidhu on the occasion also honoured various NGOs and 3 Deputy Directors (Local Government Department) from Bathinda, Patiala and Jalandhar for making herculean efforts in making the cities garbage free apart from generating awareness about clean and green environment.
Among others present on the occasion included Principal Secretary Local Government Department A. Venu Prasad, and Director, Local Government Department, Karnesh Sharma

[New Delhi]81 Unauthorised Milk Dairies in NDMC Area
The North Delhi Municipal Corporation today told the Delhi High Court that there were 81 unlicensed dairies in the areas under its jurisdiction
The submission by the corporation was made before a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar during the hearing of a PIL alleging violation of animal rights and laws in milk dairies in and around the national capital.
The civic body also told the court that only 18 licensed dairies existed in the area under its jurisdiction.
During the brief hearing, petitioner’s lawyer Gauri Maulekhi told the court that the number of unlicensed dairies might be higher than what the corporation was claiming.
However, as the stand of the other corporations and the Delhi government had not yet been filed, the bench decided to wait for their replies before passing any order.
The PIL by Maulekhi, an animals rights activist, has alleged there was indiscriminate violation of animal rights and, due to lack of infrastructure, there is no proper space for animals who have to sit alternately.
