A good professional is who acts autonomously because he is committed to his professional excellence”.

Shri Khanna further said the training programme would provide a platform for the citizens of Delhi to identify their building that how they are unsafe and structurally weak and there is need of retrofitting or reconstruction of the building so that in case of any disaster their precious lives can be saved. He said diagnosis of problem is not enough, we as government should start solving these problems. A new agency should be set up in Delhi which will only go for retrofitting and reconstruction of unsafe buildings, because thousands of buildings in Delhi, especially in East Delhi, are unsafe. He also praised the work of Special Task Force in checking the construction of illegal and unauthorized buildings.

Often, to cope up with the demand additional rooms are added for building structure which often endanger structural stability and also flout National Building Code and Building Byelaws with impunity. As per the report of NDMA in this regard post Lalita Park incident, it was revealed that 70% of the buildings in East Delhi were unsafe and would cause serious damage to the lives of people in the event of an earthquake specially when Delhi is located on the Seismic Zone-IV. He further stated that it is not the earthquake which takes away human lives but the unsafe buildings does so. Because of sandy and loose soil in East Delhi which was erstwhile part of the river bed, there is a requirement of a very deep rooted foundation and earthquake proving of each and every structure to avoid any loss of lives and property. In case of strike by earthquake, several other parts of Delhi, which are thickly populated comprising of several lacs of unauthorized/unstable structurally weak buildings which pose a serious threat to the residents of such areas. There was a need to re-develop such colonies to strengthen either by reconstructing the whole structure or by retrofitting if the same is possible. While speaking on the subject, he invited public private entrepreneurs and big construction firms to come forward and take up this challenge in the National and larger public interest.He further stated that no mitigation plan would be successful if the public in general are not made aware of the risk and consequences. He expressed his satisfaction for several steps taken and measures initiated by Govt. of Delhi specially Divisional Commissioner, GNCTD as the Secretary of Disaster Management Authority in this regard including special awareness campaigns and Mega Mock Drill conducted on 15th February 2012.

Finally, he concluded by saying that Govt. of Delhi has taken several positive steps to prevent loss of lives and property due to any eventuality of any disaster such as earthquake in the National Capital and is ready to take adequate measures to prevent the same. However, the citizens also have to fully co-operate and follow Building Byelaws for their own safety.

09th January, 2011

New Delhi: Lt. Governor of Delhi Shri Tejender Khanna today launched Amala Bharatam Campaign (Clean India Drive) which aims at increasing public participation in cleaning of public places and also to generate awareness about the cleanliness and sanitation. He said rather than discussing, if the people are motivated to actually get involved in the cleanliness drive the message would spread to more people. Delhi Finance and UD Minister Sh. A.K. Walia, Swamy Amritswarupananda, Vice Chairman Board of Trustees of Mata Amritanandamayi Math and TKA Nair were also present on the occasion.

The function was orgainsed by Mata Amritanandamayi Math and Shanti Kunj, Vasant Vihar. The objective of the Campaign is to embrace new practical initiatives to clean India, promote health through hygiene, sort out garbage and properly dispose of the waste.

Shri Khanna appealed to the people to take a vow to clean their surroundings. "If the people, government agencies and social organisations work together, this sacred endeavour will certainly bear fruit," he said.

He said the campaign would help construct urinals and toilets, wherever possible, in government schools that lack such facilities. Such a project, obviously, cannot succeed without public support. The campaign also aims at cleaning the public places and national highways.

Through this drive, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math hopes to generate social awareness towards human’s debt to the earth and the nature. The Math is ready to take up the responsibility of constructing toilets and installing trash cans in government schools and on the roads all over India if it gets the support and cooperation of the state governments and other organisations.
