Residents resent garbage dumping near Malteng graveyard
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 4: Residents of Dalgate and its adjoining areas have expressed strong resentment over dumping of garbage at the entrance of main graveyard at Malteng near the Chest Diseases Hospital.
A delegation from area said the tons of garbage daily get accumulated near the main gate of the graveyard causing immense inconvenience to the people who visit the area.
“It does not need any special law to ensure cleanliness of graveyards. It is our moral and religious duty to keep graveyards clean. Ironically the concerned SMC officials particularly the ward officer are watching as mute spectators as tons of garbage are daily dumped at the entrance of the graveyard,” the locals said.
They appealed the SMC Commissioner Dr GN Qasba to direct the concerned municipal officials to desist from dumping garbage near the graveyard entrance.
