The public park, located in Sector 14, is considered as one of the most beautifully developed parks across the sub-city but the one thing that is ruining the beauty of it is the dumping and burning of horticulture waste, including dry leaves, woods, and tree branches, etc. Most importantly, it poses a health risk due to the pollution created by it.

Locals, who visit the park daily, do not seem to be bothered with this as the civic bodies concerned too is callous as far as this issue is concerned. The situation becomes grave during summers as this park has become a 'dedicated spot' for such waste to be dumped and burnt and that too without any check!

Well, the question arises is whose responsibility or duty is it actually to avoid such activities in public places. Watch the video and comment.
