A street of Basantnagar, Kacheguda was cleared of all the garbage dump by GHMC officials within 48hrs of its grievance being aired on Toi's app. An official has been assigned to monitor the current situation and prevent any more garbage from being dumped there at that location and proper usage of garbage dumping locations are done as confirmed by the Zonal commissioner.
As highlighted by local residents the garbage had been collected over several days and many complaints to the officials were of no use as the garbage pile kept on increasing.
With Covid 19 cases back in high numbers social cleanliness could be vital in fighting the virus and such open spaces cannot be filled with garbage and plastic wastes lying alongside them. Some of the commuters have also expressed inconvenience while riding by that road as light plastic garbage would often fly on their faces while passing through that which was quite unhealthy and dangerous as it could cause possible accidents.
