CHENNAI: The Madras high court has directed the Chennai corporation and the Egmore Government Children’s Hospital to maintain hygiene at the hospital.

The bench made these observations while issuing directions on a PIL filed by K Amanullah Khan seeking a direction to the authorities to remove garbage bins placed at the entrance of the hospital. The garbage strewn on the road and pavement led to unhygenic conditions around the hospital and also inconvenienced pedestrians and vehicles crossing the area.

Khan alleged that in front of the hospital as well as inside it three overflowing garbage bins are found, and the garbage bins leak and lead to insanitary conditions that are a health hazard, especially for the young patients. Since the authorities failed to respond to his representation dated November 25, 2019, he had moved the present plea.
Responding to the plea, th e counsel for Greater Chennai Corporation submitted that good quality garbage bins would be placed at the location and regular clearance would be done by the personnel concerned.
Recording the undertaking, the bench directed the corporation to replace the garbage bins, clean them regularly and maintain sanitary conditions in and around the hospital.
This apart, the bench directed the hospital and corporation authorities to file a status report with supporting documents and photographs as to the directions passed by this court on February 27.
