Peer Fateh Mohalla complains of garbage mess, SMC sleeps
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Dec 21: The huge mounds of garbage heaped alongside the road traversing through Peer Fateh Mohalla at Baran Pather Batamalo stinks making life of the inhabitants miserable.
According to the locals, the wards adjacent to Peer Fateh Shah Mohalla collect the domestic waste and other garbage and dump it on the main road. The garbage remains there for days together.
“SMC people do not clear the garbage daily, making the area unfit for living as it smells foul everywhere and obviously looks messy,” says a resident Aqib Ahmad. He alleged the people living in adjacent wards are to be blamed for the menace.
Ironically, despite being in the vicinity of Police Control Room, Srinagar the Mohalla seems to be out of sight for Srinagar Municipal Corporation as garbage heaps continue to mount there for days together.
“Despite being situated in the heart of City, we are being ignored by the Municipal authorities,” the locals said.
For the pedestrians, the sight of garbage is simply nauseating “I daily walk along the garbage mounds. It almost makes me nauseate”, said Abdul Majeed Bhat, a government employee adding that the problem was more pathetic during summers when it stinks foul.
The locals added that the garbage heaps have become a breeding ground for stray dogs, scores of whom prowl on the mounds.
“We fear for our children who go out for tuitions as scores of dogs prowling around there may bite them”, said Zareefa, a housewife mother of two.
The locals have appealed the SMC Chief Sanitation Officer Manzoor Ahmed Turray to personally look into the matter.
