Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today directed Delhi urban shelter improvement board's CEO to visit five community toilets every morning from tomorrow and file a status report on their condition along with videos on cleanliness and availability of water at such facilities.
The chief minister, who is also the chairman of Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB), asked DUSIB CEO Shurbir Singh to visit community toilets himself at peak usage time everyday up to February 17 and share video reports during his visit with board members.
An emergency board meeting of DUSIB was held today following complaints from MLAs and others over shortage of water and power at community toilets in the city.
DUSIB members said that the problem has started after the government decided to make these toilets free and open for 24-hours.
"The Chief Minister expressed his displeasure to the CEO of DUSIB and asked him to submit a report on the status of each and every community toilet of Delhi.
"He directed the CEO to take immediate steps to improve the situation of the community toilets," an official statement said.
The CEO has been asked to submit the status report, a copy of which should reach each member of the board by February 20 noon. This report also must have videos of all the toilets showing cleanliness, availability of water, electricity etc, the statement said.
