CONGRATULATIONS for the good work done by the Municipal Board of BSB during the cleaning campaign at some areas in the capital.
What the Municipal Board should also do apart from the cleaning campaign is to inspect the toilets of shops and especially restaurants and bookshops as some of them are closed and used as places to store goods.
A majority of these toilets are very small and have limited space, (most are as big as a plane toilet) dirty, not well-kept and even without hoses.
A majority also have common doors of entry to go to male and female toilets side by side.
Another aspect that needs to be checked is the badly kept compound and access roads to shopping areas which are pot holed and look like not being cared for because the owners are only interested in making profits.
The Municipal Board should visit, check and conduct a cleaning campaign at Taman Alam shopping areas and see for themselves the state they are in.
The cleaning campaign should not only involve government staff and volunteers but also the owners of the businesses. Those residing in flats should also be asked to participate.
It is very strange that VIPs and others do the cleaning while these owners and tenants are fast asleep especially on Sundays.
