The Aam Aadmi Party’s ‘Spot the Kachra’ social media campaign which started earlier amid much fanfare on Monday saw its youth brigade taking rounds in different parts of the city to click the overflowing garbage at ‘Dhalos’, which comes under the civic bodies for maintenance.
The AAP volunteers were also seen pasting stickers on Monday at the sites where the garbage is scattered. The campaign aims to name and shame the BJP-ruled civic bodies, as the responsibility to clean the streets rests with them.
The Delhi Muncipal elections are slated in April 2017. One of the young party volutnteers said that the fear of spreading vector-borne diseses has even failed to awake the civic bodies from its deep slumber and the garbage could be seen strewn around many ‘Dhalos’ particularly in East Delhi. Another volunteer at Sonia Vihar in North East Delhi said people have come forward asking for fogging in their area and also for keeping the surroundings clean and hygienic.
"Wherever a filthy sight we come across, it is instantly clicked and put on social media sites more on whatsApp. The party’s helpline number came in handy for the concerned citizens to inform the unhealthy sites in their locations," said another party volunteer.
