Divisional Commissioner Raj Kamal Chaudhary along with Deputy Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori on Friday chaired a meeting of the Airfield Environment Management Committee regarding measures to be taken for the disposal of liquid and solid waste and prevention of open garbage in the surrounding areas of the air force station.
Air Force officers, led by Air Commodore GKJ Reddy, gave a detailed presentation on various issues and apprised the Divisional Commissioner that garbage dumping in surrounding areas of the station could lead to presence of birds which could hit an airborne aircraft. Further, they informed that garbage dumping in villages near the air force station and adjoining areas had become a big cause of the presence of birds around it.
In the meeting, they also discussed in detail various issues like proper disposal of carcasses and measures to maintain environmental cleanliness within a 10-15 km radius of the air force station, prevention of unauthorised slums, eating houses, butcheries, slaughterhouses, etc, near the air force station boundary, besides new constructions in nearby areas.
The Divisional Commissioner immediately directed the officials to ensure that these issues were looked into and solved immediately. Prominent among those present in the meeting was SDM Dr Jai Inder Singh.
