The GHMC’s new rule about collecting garbage from homes, instead of it being dumped at nearby garbage places, has created new troubles for streets, mohallas and colonies. Most of them have literally turned into dumping grounds as the GHMC no longer collects garbage through trucks.
In fact, the situation has come to a point that some irresponsible people have started throwing their garbage in places that violates the sanctity of mosques, dargahs, and burial grounds. Naturally, this has become a cause of concern for citizens as this unregulated dumping of garbage all over the place can lead to decomposition of the waste, which in turn causes unbearable stench and even gives rise to pandemic diseases.
Banners have been put up in places such as Dargah Abdullah Shah Naqashbandi at Naqashbandi Chaman, Misriganj and other burial grounds. However, huge piles of garbage are still found at these places and other places in the old city.
Responding to the plight, some responsible citizens tried to supply water at cleaned dumping grounds so that the dumping could be avoided. But all efforts yielded no result, and the situation is back to square one. The situation is equally bad at a government school and the wall at Falaknuma and near the Bundlaguda Tehsildar’s office.
GHMC’s failure to pick garbage daily has simply worsened the situation and living and commuting through these localities has become unbearable.
