Hyderabad: Mounting piles of garbage is making the lives of resident of Dabeerpura miserable. The piles of garbage gives the lie to tall claims of prompt action by the sanitation officials. However, there is no respite for the residents as the garbage remains unatteneded to within 72 hours.
Taking into cognisance of The Hans India report, GHMC sanitation officials, led by Circle 4A Deputy Commissioner B Krishna Sheker, made the garbage get cleared near the Dabeerpura Community Hall premises on Tuesday.
However, the garbage is back in stocked in piles and strewn along the road as there is no bin to enable the residents to dump the waste. On Wednesday, the sanitation workers were back to their old ways and have turned a blind eye to the issue.
Syed Jahangir, a 24-year-old resident of Dabeerpura said, “Garbage was cleared on Tuesday morning, but by evening it was back and remained there even on Wednesday. However, sanitation officials simply picked up garbage leaving the gluey muck . They said it was the duty of the Water Board to clear the muck.
I am surprised at the indifferent attitude of the sanitation workers as they used a bobcat equipment to clear the garbage. All they had to do was to use the machine to simply collect the rubbish and load it into their van. We need a permanent solution rather than a knee-jerk reaction from municipal officials,” he said.
He said the puddles of water near the site have turned intobreeding grounds for mosquitoes. These has the potential to spread diseases like dengue, malaria and other vector-borne diseases.
Due to lack of bins, residents in the vicinity have been dumping garbage near the transformer close to the community hall, he said. Jahangir also claimed that the sanitation workers never turn up to collect the door-to-door garbage.
Syed Shahnawaz, another resident said, “If the garbage collector comes to our house, there is no need for people to dump garbage here.” Deputy Commissioner B Krishna Sheker was not available for a comment on Wednesday.
