According to the traders, the slush removed from the drains is also dumped on the roadside everyday. “Although the BEACON authorities employ labourers to clean up the drain at the road side of Kangan market, but the labourers stack up the slush on the road” Abdul Rashid a local trader said.
The traders said that they have been continuously apprising the senior functionaries of the concerned department about the problems faced by them and the people due to the presence of garbage, but to no avail. “Our repeated pleas have fallen on deaf ears as the garbage hasn’t been lifted till date, putting the people to immense hardships,” the traders added.
An official said that some of the labourers have been assigned the task to remove the garbage from the main market.
