SAMBA, OCTOBER 06: District Development Commissioner Samba discussed arrangements for upcoming festivals, including Navratras, Mahanavami, Dussehra, and Diwali here at a meeting of line departments.

One of the key points discussed during the meeting was the importance of cleanliness and sanitation in Gram Panchayats and temples.

It was decided that the Block Development Officer and the Executive Officer of the Municipality would be responsible for ensuring cleanliness of the areas and to ensure that only decomposable materials are disposed of in water bodies.

The Jal Shakti Department was tasked with ensuring the availability of water during the festivals to meet the community's needs. Additionally, there was a discussion about providing uninterrupted power supply through the availability of generators to ensure the smooth flow of festivities.

Efficient traffic management during the festivals was emphasized, with the Traffic Police responsible for staff deployment. Security for Ramleelas was another concern, particularly for women, and provisions for toilet facilities and water were prioritized.

Tehsildar Bari Brahmnaa was designated to oversee queue management at Purmandal and ensure cleanliness, including the installation of dustbins at essential locations.

The aim was to make the event a "zero garbage event" by promoting responsible waste disposal. Legal metrology teams will conduct market checks to ensure compliance with regulations, including the availability of milk products during Navratras monitored by the Animal Husbandry Department.

Furthermore, only green crackers, following Supreme Court guidelines, will be allowed, with Chinese crackers prohibited. Stringent fire safety measures were discussed, ensuring the proximity of fire brigade vehicles to important festival sites.

Adequate medical support, including ambulances with first aid kits, will be provided at fishing grounds by the Health Department to prevent any untoward incidents or stampedes.

Lastly, the Public Works Department (PWD) will clear all potholes to ensure smooth and safe transportation for festival-goers.

The meeting was attended by SSP Samba Sh Benam Tosh, SSP Traffic Samba Vinay Kumar, ADC samba Suresh Chander and all senior officers of District administration samba
