Garbage heaps at entrance irks SP college, SMC sleeps
Principal seeks removal of dumper bin
SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI
Srinagar, June 5: The presence of garbage heaps at the entrance of Kashmir’s heritage educational institute, the SP College has irked the students and the teachers alike with the college principal seeking shifting of the dumper bin to elsewhere. The Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) has been sleeping over the issue.
Sources said the college principal Zahoor Ahmed Tchat has shot a letter to the concerned authorities pleading that the presence of garbage bin at the entrance was a nuisance.
“The presence of garbage heaps at the entrance of an educational institute is unhealthy for all practical purposes,” Tchat is understood to have told the authorities.
Pertinently for the past several years the SP College entrance is serving as a garbage yard. Leave apart garbage heaps, at times animal carcass are seen lying there. The problem furthers during summers as stench emanates from the dumper bin placed there.
All this has been irking the college people and the visitors while the Srinagar Municipal Corporation has failed to take requisite measures.
When contacted the Health Officer SMC refused to comment on the issue while she gave telephone number of her colleague. Her colleague also declined to comment on the issue and gave the number of his colleague saying “he is the right person to be contacted.” But he too refused to comment on the issue.
