Guna (Madhya Pradesh): In a one-of-a-kind incident, a block coordinator posted at Chachoda Janpad in Guna district got a show cause notice for negligence in work just 24 hours after being honoured during the Independence Day celebration.
This all happened with Nandram Ahirwar, block coordinator under the Swachh Bharat Mission posted at Chachoda Janpad, and he was felicitated on August 15 for the excellent work done under the Swachh Bharat Mission.
He got a citation in the programme from the chief guest, but on August 16 itself, a show cause notice was issued to him. Notice was also given for the same thing for which it was awarded. A notice was issued from the district collector's office to him for negligence in the work of the Swachh Bharat Mission Scheme. The department asked him to submit his reply within the next seven days.
It has been mentioned in the notice that the block coordinator is not able to discharge the given responsibilities. In the event of non-response within 7 days, it has been said to take unilateral action. That is, the work for which respect was paid was done a day ago, and the very next day a notice was issued for negligence in that work.
