Indore (Madhya Pradesh): It was a shocking moment when a heap of garbage with papers scattered all over, was found outside the Chief Medical and Health Officer's (CMHO) office in Swacch Indore-- the city that won cleanest tag for 6 years in a row!
As per the reports of Nai Dunia, the issues in the CMHO office include:
Poor Sanitation: Widespread garbage and filth, along with spider webs, indicate a lack of proper cleanliness.
Dilapidated Infrastructure: Broken cabinet doors and malfunctioning tube lights reflect the office's deteriorating state.
Lack of Maintenance: The absence of regular cleaning and upkeep for the past two years has resulted in an unsightly and unhygienic workspace.
Workload Mismanagement: Assigning clerical tasks to lower-grade employees may lead to a lack of accountability for cleanliness and maintenance.
Budget Misutilization: Despite receiving a significant annual budget, there is a failure to effectively utilize funds for addressing maintenance and sanitation issues.
Accountability Issues: Authorities and officials seem to evade their responsibilities, raising concerns about their commitment to addressing the issues.
