Disconnect between ground level staff and the management on cleanliness drive
Surprisingly, even at such places of high attention, the toilets are stinking, taps are leaking and it is not just usable. I agree that the foot fall is very high, but, the root cause is the ground level staff who are not conscious about keeping it clean. They may have their own reasons which one of the maintenance staff started revealing when I was probing him.
I have observed such disconnect in other occasions too. There was a school event at East Point School, Vasundhara Enclave. The children had presented a beautiful play on Swachh Bharat theme. While the show was on the attendant of Sound and Light system was chewing pan masala and spitting right there shamelessly. He was totally indifferent to what was being preached on the loud speakers. Similarly, in a petrol bunk, there was a big hoarding on Swachh Barat campaign and at the same time the attendant staff was not hesitating to throw empty gutka pouch at his will.
I see a lot of money and time being invested on Swachh Bharat campaign, but, unfortunately, the ground staff is yet to be awakened on the issue. They are not just getting the bigger problem the country is facing. more
