The standing committee of Rajya Sabha will ar-rive in Kashmir on a four-day study tour and will look into the provisioning, procurement of machines and status of implementation of waste management rules with special reference to Swachh Bharat Mis-sion, reads an official communiqué.
The visiting delegation will focus on the admin-istrative development and people’s welfare under the Swachh Bharat Mission.
According to the order, the delegation is ex-pected to visit Srinagar’s Dal Lake on August 17 to bring forth the issues related with controlling pollu-tion in the Lakes of IIOJK and on August 18, the delegation will visit Gulmarg to check the status of the Waste Management rules in and around Gul-marg.
