Garbage heaps irk Khalid Bin Waleed colony
Srinagar, Oct 2: The residents of Khalid-Bin-Waleed colony, Natipora complained that Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) doesn’t clean the garbage pit in their area thereby putting them to inconvenience.
A delegation of aggrieved residents from Khalid-Bin-Waleed colony told Greater Kashmir that heaps of garbage are lying in the open pit in their colony as there is no dumper bin there. “The residents throw the garbage in the pit because there is no dumper bin in our colony and municipal workers don’t even bother to clean that pit,” Farooq Ahmad a resident flanked by others said.
“The garbage pit remains open and it emits foul smell all the time. This can result in outbreak of epidemics in the area. We appeal the concerned to take this issue into cognizance and act accordingly,” the locals added.
“Several times we appealed the government regarding this issue but they provided deaf ear to our grievances all the time,” they said.
When contacted the concerned authorities said that they would send a team to the area. “We will send our team to the spot…and will take necessary action immediately,” said a Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) official.
