Ludhiana: Despite the fact councilor of ward number 31 raised the issue of shifting dump and sand trolleys around the Budda Nullah in the General House meeting in December and Mayor of City, Harcharan Singh gave orders also of shifting dump soon under new policy of installing the compactors but nothing has been done till date in this regard. The city residents are still living in hell with fear of outbreak of diseases.
The dump adjoining to the Buddha Nullah at Haibowal is getting bigger each day and has made life of city residents hell. Earlier, the city residents protested number of times but their problem has not been sorted out by now. Karaj Singh, President of the Residents said that they are sick and tired of complaining to councilor of the area and earlier, commissioner over this issue as no one does anything to put off dump and sand trolleys away from area, which is causing problem for residents.
Neither dump has been shifted from spot nor sand trolleys by authorities till date. It is pertinent to mention that residents of the ward number 31 remained up in arms against authorities for the month turning blind eye to their problems. They alleged that tractor-trailers of sand had been parked right on bridge in an illegal manner and law enforcing agencies were allegedly hand in gloves with the owners of tractor-trailers. The area is slowly turning into the garbage dump as litter is seen scattered all over the bridge, not just causing inconvenience, but putting residents at risk of many diseases.
The resident complained that garbage is scattered all over bridge and due to these problems even the road along Nullah has not carpeted till date. Karaj Singh on behalf of residents said that garbage lifting agencies rarely visit area. Municipal Corporation authorities are just not bothered to issue necessary instructions to agency to lift garbage on time.
The Councilor of the area, Narinder Singh Malhi was not available for comments and he took no pains to do anything about it.
