Remove cow dung from roadsides in Dooniwari

Heaps of cow dung continues to lie on roadsides in Dooniwarivillage of Tehsil Chadoora. Despite taking up the matter with the authoritiesconcerned there has been no end to the problem which is now proving to be amajor health hazard. The foul smell emanating from the cow dung is forcingpeople to keep the windows and doors shut all the time. In rainy season the cowdung seeps into the nearby stream and pollutes the water source, which is themain water source for irrigation purpose. Most of the people from the localityalso throw garbage into the stream thus choking its flow. The stream has alsobeen encroached at several places. We appealed the authorities concerned tolook into these issues.

We request thedistrict administration Ganderbal and concerned PDD authorities to look intothe issue
