The overflowing dustbins in front of plot 10 and 11 of Dwarka’s sector 7 are causing a lot of problems to the residents of the area. These dustbins were provided under the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ and their current condition expose the loopholes of the highly publicised mission.

Incidentally, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) staff visit this area every day for cleaning garbage. However, despite constant requests, they don’t pay attention towards the dustbins.

While visiting the Sector 6 market today, I was heavily pained to witness garbage scattered all over the place despite the presence of fifty dustbins in the area.

Since the Sector 6 seat belongs to former mayor of SDMC and leader of the house, Kamaljeet Sehrawat, more than seven SDMC and private sweepers were present in the area.  

When the SDMC officials are questioned regarding the market’s pathetic condition, they claim that it’s the DDA’s responsibility to clean the area.

Broken dustbins were lying all over the area and were removed immediately when I pointed them out to the supervisor.

The situation is more dreadful in the Sector 5 and Sector 12 markets situated around the Ashirwad Chowk. The pathetic conditions of dustbins in these sectors and filth lying all around expose the lackadaisical approach of the SDMC.

Moreover, the green belt and corridor of the Sector 5 market have also been encroached badly.

SDMC needs to take some concrete steps for cleaning these dustbins as they display the failure of 'Swachh Bharat Mission' in the sub-city.
