Jamshedpur No Comments on Administration orders cleanliness and safety at Chhath ghats 28

Jamshedpur : The steel city is gearing forward to the Chhath festival. The local administration has sprung into action to clean up ghats that, after a whole year of neglect and lack of any care or upkeep, will need an army of workers toiling round the clock to make it usable and safe for devotees. A delegation led by DC Amit Kumar inspected different ghats.

Sources informed that DC ordered authorities to carry cleanliness drive at different ghats. Administration has called the corporates like Jusco, Tata Motors and Tata Steel to provide manual and machinery assistance to the administrative officials in carrying out the exercise before the festival. “We have asked all the socially responsible corporate institutions to extend their cooperation in carrying out the drive,” said DC.

Particularly, Jusco has been asked to provide electricity and make lighting arrangement in the low laying areas of the city, or for that matter, at the approaching paths to the two rivers.

The most important task before the administration is to barricade the danger zone and stop the devotees and revellers from breaching into that area. In the light of past incidents of drowning the administration has got serious with this issue and has taken firm measures in this regard particularly, in Mango, Sonari and Kadma where the possibility of accidents are high.

Meanwhile officials of Chhath Ghat Committee said said that people take bath in water tanks and rivers and therefore it is essential that the cleaning work of these water bodies is completed on time. “This year the situation is just opposite so we are making adequate arrangements to make the festival an incident free celebration,” said a district administration official.

Meanwhile, administration will be deploying trained swimmers and lifeguards along with paddle boats at different points on Subernarekha and Kharkhai river during chhath festivity. Danger spots would be demarcated and all ghats would be barricaded.
