The teams also sanitised the Central Jail, all government employees’ residential quarters and residential areas of doctors and paramedical staff.

Harwinder Singh Bhullar, sanitary inspector, said 250 sweepers of the civic body had started collecting garbage from door to door in 25 wards of the town. “We have cancelled the leave applications of all employees,” he said.
