Despite curfew, SMC upholds nocturnal garbage collection in tourist hub
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, July 20: The visitors putting up in the tourist hub along the Boulevard could be pestered because of the continued curfew, but the Srinagar Municipal Corporation upheld the recently started nocturnal garbage collection in the area during the ongoing City siege.
The tourism players said the garbage collection vehicles came to the area in the night hours to collect the garbage from hotels and restaurants, which recently agreed to pay more for the timely collection of the trash.
“Nocturnal garbage collection is good but tourism sector is getting affected because of the curfew, so this issue is equally important,” said a tourism player.
When contacted the SMC Commissioner Dr GN Qasba said the civic body aspires to ensure that the “momentum is maintained.” “We don’t want to break the newly evolved system. The show must go on,” he added.
Pertinently the district administration had announced that the I-cards of the essential services staffers would be deemed as curfew passes.
City centre parking lot in mess
Meanwhile the car parking-lot at old SRTC bus stand in the City centre of Lal Chowk is in a mess for being used as a junkyard.
For the past several weeks, the parking lot is being used by the SMC as dumping yard thereby depriving people from using the facility. And the place not only looks ugly but stinks in the heart of the City.
Despite repeated pleas till now the concerned sanitation staff has failed to act. The area traders and others have appealed the SMC Commissioner to get the parking lot cleaned at an earliest.
