He said that our purpose is to serve the citizens of the city and provide them with best water and sewerage facilities. Moreover, speaking to KW and SB officers he said that Water supply and sewerage service is a public service which is our religious duty as well. They should stay in contact with the citizens of their area and take strict actions on any complaints. He said that complaints against any officer would be facing severe actions.
Later on, he visited several other hydrants in the city for inspection and directed the employees that they must run the hydrants within the scheduled timings only. He directed concerned Chief Engineers and Hydrants In-charges not to use boosters on any hydrants.
