Dwarka: The only thing the streets of Dwarka see more than cars these days is garbage. After so many diseases, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) seems to have failed in carrying forward the “Clean India Mission” prompted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Dustbins are seldom cleaned and garbage is seldom disposed of properly. Market areas in Sector 10 and residential areas are the worst affected, with overflowing garbage bins and trash scattered on the roads.
Residents in these areas are distraught at the unhygienic conditions they are forced to live in. The conditions here are appalling and it is difficult to walk on the streets. Large garbage bins have been replaced with smaller bins. They do not have the capacity to collect all the waste the area generates.
It is happening when the Covid situation is still not under control and we need to avoid this trash scattered on the roads to avoid more diseases.
Amit Kumar Harish, former Secretary of Saral Apartments in Sector 10 said, “Earlier they used to collect garbage every day. These days, however, they are not cleaned till the end of the day.”
People who stay nearby are suffering from the smell and lots of garbage in front of the societies they live in.
Sangeeta Misra, a resident of Sector 10, said, “Mosquitoes, flies, and other insects are breeding and the residents are facing great health risks. With frequent showers, the garbage starts rotting, and the filth and unclear garbage result in a continuous stink.”
Kuldeep Yadav, an official from SDMC said that the subject is taken into concern and needful will be done.
