No More Garbage Here!!

Community Correspondent Shanta Yevtikar lives in Nanded district of Maharashtra. One day while travelling through Phule Nagar area of Mukhed city, she noticed a lot of water and garbage collected in the vicinity. The stench was unbearable to the point that she felt sick when her bus stopped there for 15 minutes. Phule Nagar community is very angry with the local municipality. They have registered a number of complains over the months but nothing has been done to answer their plea. The area is next to the bus stand, where traffic and crowd is a usual sight. The travellers often urinate next to the road, frequented by drivers and passengers alike. While this highlights the lack of proper infrastructure at the bus stand, it also shows the poor resolute of a commoner. Bound by nature or tempted by need, they continue to urinate and throw garbage around the community. The residents have to walk past this mess and often suffer from diseases like malaria, viral and frequent fever. Along with usual garbage, dead animals from around the block are also thrown at the same location. This has become a hazard for the community. The garbage problem has become unmanageable. So much that the community is planning to launch a protest against the municipality. CC Shanta has taken charge and wants to bring change to the community. Please call Mr Othikar, Chief Offcier, Mukhed Municipality, Nanded district, Maharashtra on 02462 / 222562 and inform about the health hazards.
