2 MCG officials under lens ‘for harassing sanitation workers’


Gurgaon: MCG on Tuesday ordered an inquiry against two senior sanitary inspectors accused of harassing some sanitation workers. The probe comes in the wake of a complaint by an RTI activist that the two MCG officials, along with some contractors, withheld the salaries of these sanitation workers for months and made them work even on holidays and without weekly offs.
MCG additional commissioner Vaishali Sharma told TOI, “I have initiated an inquiry on the basis of the complaint. I have called the officials as well as the complainants to my office on Thursday for a personal hearing opportunity. If the two officials are found guilty of unprofessional conduct, necessary action will be taken as per rules.”
According to the Nagar Palika Karmachari Sangh, Haryana, some of the sanitation workers have not received their salaries for months. “In fact, salaries of around 50 sanitation workers have not been released for two to three months now. I have also raised this issue with the MCG officials,” said Naresh Malkat, state secretary of the Nagar Palika Karmachari Sangh, Haryana.
“Moreover, some sanitation workers were laid off.”
According to the complaint, some sanitation workers have also been removed from their jobs on “flimsy grounds”.
The two sanitation department officials, however, refuted the allegations and said they’re ready for the inquiry.
“These allegations are baseless. This has been done so that we don’t make sanitation workers work. I am not making them clean my house, however, I am making them work for the city,” said one of the senior sanitary inspectors.
“Moreover, if the salaries of around 50 out of 3,200 sanitation workers have not been disbursed, it implies that there would be some problem. It does not mean that we are doing it on purpose to harass them,” he added.
