Hyderabad: The clean and green programme to upkeep the colonies under the Boduppal Municipal Corporation (BMC) seems to follow the traditional style of Podu or shifting cultivation of tribals in the forest areas.

The corporation allocates 10 colonies for a team of four sanitation workers to look after them. Yashoda along with the team starts the day in the morning about 6 am to take up the cleaning work in one of the 10 assigned colonies.

She points out that depending on the households in each colony, takes five to six days to ensure that the entire colony is clean.

Then, the team moves to another colony. This way, a colony once cleaned will have to wait for fifteen days, some times more than one month for its turn for taking up clean and green.

The sanitation workers have to lift the garbage, plastic and other materials left or dumped in the open spaces. That apart, they also have to ensure that the branches of the trees planted along the internal roads in the colonies assigned to them are properly trimmed.

This is to ensure that the branches of the trees would not pose any problem to the vehicles moving on the roads. In the case of the three words of Chengicherla, the BMC has given one garbage tractor, one water tanker to water the trees planted under the Haritha Haram(THH).

Every day, the tractor has to make two to three trips to take the garbage to the dumping yard by four persons.

But, the colonies that the four-person team has to cover with their tractor spread in about 30 residential colonies under the ward from 1 to 3 under Chengicherla.
