Babus turn Kashmir’s entry point into garbage dumping site
Heaps of dirt welcome entrants, locals suffer, admin absconding

Early Times Report

Jammu, Feb 21: At a time when the Jammu and Kashmir administration is making claims of ensuring sanitation across the UT for the greater common good, the piles of dirt and garbage at Qazigund seem to be bellying such farcical claims to the core.
Pictures of piles of garbage in the main markets of Qazigund are widely being circulated on social media with people questioning such a non-serious approach of those at the helm in mitigating the sufferings of the masses.
The piles of dirt giving out a putrid odor and bands of mosquitoes flying carelessly around is what has become the symbol of sanitation in the Qazigund area- the main market that connects Kashmir Valley with the outer world. “Months have passed but the administration is not deeming it necessary to clean the road from such garbage. It has the tendency to unleash dreadful diseases in the area and may cause severe health issues among the locals. This is ironic that the administration is caring least for sanitation that too at a time when a plethora of public funds is being spent on Swach Bharat Abhiyaan.
When the government cannot even clear the dumped garbage from the main roads for weeks and for months, how could claim to have been working for making the union territory the cleanest region in the country? It is all a façade,” says a local resident as he was highlighting the issue.
Scores of others pitched for strict action against the erring officials. They alleged that such mismanagement is ruling the roost in Jammu and Kashmir at present that the administration has in an outright manner adopted an indifferent attitude towards the genuine grievances of the locals. “Imagine what image would there be in front of the travelers traveling to Jammu and Kashmir. Not the picturesque valley, emerald streams, and snow-clad mountains would be welcoming them but the garbage dumping sites at the very entry into the valley. Now you can very well imagine how things have worsened in the erstwhile state and babus have got a free day. They have no accountability, no fear of reprisal. They are not even scared of public anger. All they care for is their posts and the doles and sops that come along. In the middle of all this fiasco, common masses are bearing the brunt, suffering for their no-fault and staring at the scenes making a mockery of the good governance,” writes a netizen while commenting on the post.
