Madhapur: Hyderabad was ranked India’s best capital city for solid management by the Swacch Survekshan 2018 survey but there are places which seemed to be unchanged. Ayyapa society, Madhapur is one such place where often the garbage is found on the roads.
The results for Swacch Survekshan 2018, aimed to estimate the cleanliness of urban local bodies which were announced on May 16 by the Union Minister of State Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri.
The garbage was found at the entrance of the society and the commuters are already finding inconvenience to walk in such bad roads which are still to be fixed and now the garbage issue is making their way difficult to even walk in the society. According to the sources, though, the garbage is being collected by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) workers regularly but some of the area society residents are making it worse.
The official said, “The garbage thrown at the areas will be checked by the officials and if garbage found anywhere will ask them to clean it immediately. Also, sometimes the GHMC workers come late and collect the garbage and we see that they get late because usually the workers have to collect the garbage from every house.
We make sure that this will not continue further anymore ”
Ramnika residents of Madhapur said, “Garbage, collected from surrounding colonies, is brought and dumped at the garbage transfer site in small vehicles. From here, the garbage is shifted in bigger vehicles to the garbage dumping yard at colony and when trucks arrive at the garbage transfer station and are loaded with the garbage to be taken to the point.
Ashish the pedestrian said, “This is the worst time for commuters as the stench permeates everywhere. This is our regular way and most of the people walk from Ayyapa society being this entrances no person can bare the smell. Also, HMRL authorities had requested the GHMC to shift the garbage transfer station from the place, but this has not happened so far”.
