Dwarka: The back lane of Sector 10 market, near Andhra Bank, Dwarka is full of debris (malba) and garbage. There is lack of sanitation and absence of maintenance everywhere you see. It is such a shocking state since this is such a modern and planned resident hub. With a growing population and increase in commercial activity, the problem is getting aggravated.
In spite of all the complaints and issues raised by residents, the problem continues to persist. The back lane of Sector 10 is always stinking also because restaurants throw food waste on the backside.
Abhinav Gupta, a shopkeeper said, “Someone has thrown construction debris here. People have started dumping garbage also near the debris. Garbage mound is getting accumulated and it has not been cleaned for several months now.”
Sandeep Singh, a resident of sector 10 said, “It certainly has a very bad smell and unpleasant sight. Authorities should immediately do something about it.”

Mosquitoes are breeding in large numbers. On the one hand, there is a drive against malaria, chikungunya and dengue, but actually, the problems lie just in front of us.
Arvind Aggarwal, a resident of Sector 10 said, “There is no action towards cleaning these mounds. Rodents are seen scrounging on the waste food matter. Garbage collection and sweeping of the roads and lanes are given the least priority.”
Shalani Ghosh, a resident of Sector 10 said, “Mosquitoes, flies and other insects are breeding and the shoppers are facing great health risks. With frequent showers, the garbage starts rotting and the filth and unclear garbage results in a continuous stink.”
Garbage and waste management has been going from bad to worse in Dwarka and has now assumed very critical proportions. Garbage literally dots the sub-city nowadays. Most back lanes have turned into big garbage dumps.
Heaps of garbage lie uncleared for days. It starts stinking and gets scattered all over the place. It is a very filthy ward sight. It looks like the authorities have forgotten this place and this waste has become a dumping ground for garbage.
