Sanjeev Kumar, RWA General Secretary says, “I can say that our sector is considered as a dumping yard. The garbage and dry leaves are not collected by the contractors. The contractors should remove the garbage on a daily basis.”
Atul Mittal, a resident says, “Our sector has been regularly facing the issue of sanitation. The drains are not clean. Earlier, the sanitation workers were on strike. We are worried after this incident. Hopefully, no one was injured and the fire was extinguished on time.”
