What does a person think while buying a house in an upscale society? A life full of amenities, probably. Despite spending a hefty amount when health and hygiene- the key aspects of life are not taken care of, in places like these, residents get agitated.
In upscale societies like Ireo Victory Valley, M3M Golf Estate and Merlin, Park View Spa next on Golf Course Road Extension, residents are being forced to live in an unhygienic environment as not only domestic waste but the construction waste is also being dumped in the area.
“Construction waste is a major source of pollution in the area as builders dump Construction and demolition (C&D) waste on a regular basis. In just 6 months, dumpers full of C&D waste have created 10 to 15 feet high mound,” said one of the residents of M3M Merlin, sector 67.
According to residents, concerned authorities like Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP), Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG), the pollution control board is to be held responsible as it failed to take necessary actions despite receiving numerous complaints.
Another resident who is facing the issue said that, “The government bodies keep on passing the blame on one another stating the jurisdiction limits and we, the residents are bearing the brunt.”
Some major steps need to be taken else the life of residents, especially kids and elderly will be at threat due to this pathetic situation.
