RESIDENT SPEAK: 'Corporation officials get salary perks on time, for what!'

Posted: Apr 30, 2018     By Rejimon CK

Burning leaves and garbage has come to pose a severe threat to the environment in the area. And the authorities are well aware of the practise.

In summer, things are worse! Even before the season started, I ran from pillar to post, asking concerned officials in civic positions to do something about the situation. I asked them to add extra vehicles and labour force to manage the waste, so that burning could be stopped — but all in vain.

The contract for existing Tata 407 tuck expired two months back, and the SDMC didn’t think it was important enough to float the tender on time — such is their callousness! But corporation officials get their salary perks on time — for what!

Recently, I took pictures of open burning of garbage near airport.  I took pictures and sent them to Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) and Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC). I also shared the pictures through Twitter and Facebook, but no action happened on the ground. 

This is really unfortunate!
