Dirty roads, garbage make life hell
Even as citizens of Hyderabad were celebrating Independence Day, residents of Dabeerpura continued to reel under heaps of garbage and stench.
Hyderabad: Even as citizens of Hyderabad were celebrating Independence Day, residents of Dabeerpura continued to reel under heaps of garbage and stench.
Health hazard could be a major result of this garbage heap and it has created a situation of precariousness for nearby residents who are concerned that this could spread diseases.
A resident Shanawaz Syed said, “Real freedom for us is to see our area clean. It is over five months that Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) staff has cleaned roads in our area. Garbage is not cleared here on a regular basis.
It has been ignored repeatedly by the cleaning staff for reasons best known to them. If this continues, I am afraid that we will very soon fall prey to diseases.” Adding to the woes of residents are the unclean roads. People visiting the community hall at Dabeerpura are facing a lot of problems as the road in front is full of filth.
Another resident M Yousuf said, “We have complained to GHMC officials several times, but there is no response. Today, we are yet to celebrate Independence Day as GHMC cleaning staff is nowhere to be seen.”
Added to the stink, stray dogs are posing danger to residents. Complaints to the GHMC have fallen on deaf ears and many children have become victims of dog bites in the last few months.
Ahmed, another local said, “We find the situation very disturbing. Authorities are just not bothered to develop this part of the city.” Dabeerpura corporator Mirza Riyaz Hassan was not available for his comment on the prevailing situation near the community hall.
