EARLY TIMES REPORT

POONCH, Oct 17: The Municipal Council (MC) Poonch is acting as a major stumbling block in the construction of Solid Waste Treatment (SWT) Plant in the town. The claims can be substantiated with the fact that around three locations have been changed in two years due to alleged interference of some senior officials of the local body.
Sources told Early Times that the Council is deliberately indulging in creating inordinate delay for construction of the SWT Plant, envisaged for proper disposal of the garbage generated in the municipal area.
They alleged that whenever a location for construction of SWT plant is decided, local residents start creating problems by resorting to frequent protests allegedly at the behest of few officials of MC Poonch, adding that ultimately the project is getting stopped every now and then.
They further said that earlier the location at Bikaran Singh Deri was finalized, accordingly tendering process was completed and the work was about to start but due to protest lodged by the residents, the project could not be taken off. Later the location was shifted to Digwar, where same problem erupted thereby another location was found out at Ajote. They said that vehicles of MC Poonch take garbage in far off areas of the town around 7-8 kms away for dumping. “Some retired officials of MC Poonch are also involved in creating obstacles in construction of SWT Plant,” they said.
The sources inside the Municipal Council told Early Times that all these problems are being created by the officials themselves due to reasons best known to them. “Although the funds for the project are lying with Directorate ULB but due to negligence of the officials, the project is getting delayed,” they said.
Similar is the situation at Surankote MC, where no proper disposal system of garbage has been devised so far due to which area is grappling with unattended garbage.
When Early Times contacted the concerned officials, they put the blame on the public saying that whenever a project is started, the local residents stage a protest.
