For safety of Rafale jets, solid waste management plant to be started on priority in Ambala: Anil Vij


AMBALA: After the Indian Air Force (IAF) highlighted the concerns about safety of Rafale aircraft at the Ambala airbase with Haryana chief secretary, the state home minister Anil Vij on Monday said that the solid waste management plant will be started on priority basis in the district.
Vij called a meeting at his residence of the concerned officials of Ambala Sadar Municipal Council (MC), Ambala City Municipal Corporation, Cantonment Board, IAF and others.
While addressing the officials, Vij said, “It is a matter of pride for us that Rafale aircraft squadron has been established at Ambala IAF station. IAF’s air marshal expressed the possibility of the Rafale’s safety being endangered due to garbage and birds. We need to pay attention towards this serious and important issue. All the people of government, non-government and social organisations have to work together to keep the environment safe for the fighter jets in Ambala.”
Vij told, “In the meeting with the officials of all the concerned bodies, some important decisions have been taken. Firstly, the solid waste management plant will be started at the priority basis in Ambala as until it is not established, the garbage will continue to be dumped unprocessed. Secondly, the Gwal Mandis (dairies) around Ambala Cantt and city will be shifted out. ”
Vij said a committee has been formed for this entire work and ULBD chief engineer Bhaskar Gupta will be its chairman, while the Ambala Sadar MC executive officer (EO) Virender Nehra and Virender Saharan of Ambala City MC will be its members.
