Ujjain: Mayor Meena Jonwal has expressed dissatisfaction over the efforts made by Ujjain Municipal Corporation (UMC), in connection with the cleanliness survey due in January 2018.

On Thursday, at a meeting of UMC officials, she asked them to rejuvenate the campaign. She further said that except for municipal corporation Commissioner (CMC) Vijay Kumar J and additional Commissioner Suresh Rewal, the whole team would remain the same as last year, but added that there however, was a marked decline in enthusiasm to emerge as number one.

She called on officials to refrain from wasting time and make full fledged efforts in making Ujjain number one. The CMC said officers were constantly trying to make efforts to improve the quality of work but were hindered due to lack of cooperation from corporators. The mayor promised to talk to the corporators separately.
