What is SMC doing?
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, Nov 4: At a time when Legal Metrology department has found a bakery shop selling bread without date of manufacture and expiry, which obviously means the same could be misfit for human consumption, what is the Srinagar Municipal Corporation doing?
This question is doing rounds in the public circles with consumers fearing that some expired edibles could be on sale in the markets.
“Just yesterday I procured a packet of dry fruits and it was full of worms,” said a consumer adding same was true with pastry, which smelled stenchy.
Also at many places the restaurant and fast food joints were seen selling the edibles without use of hand gloves, which was made mandatory some years back when Dr Shafqat Khan was the Health Officer SMC. Since then his successors at the chair including Dr Reyaz Ahmed continued with the norms. But for now the allegedly poor market inspection by the SMC is leading to violation of norms.
When contacted a senior SMC official, however, said the civic body was maintaining a “round the clock check” on the markets. “We have been fining the erring traders wherever spotted,” he added.
