Locals stated that due to big heaps of garbage on the road, there are greater health and medical issues as people don’t have access to hygienic environment.
Besides, there are bakery shops near the garbage piles, which make the situation even worse.

They have no idea about the ground situation,” locals said, and urged the Deputy Commissioner Rajouri to intervene and take strict action against officials who are taking their jobs casually.
ADC Sub District Kotranka, Surinder Mohan said that the garbage heaps are a huge problem for the general public and he will try to resolve the issue.
