Stinking garbage has become a matter of serious concern for New Panvel residents for years. Open plots and sides of the road have been turned into garbage dumping grounds at various sectors.
Apart from household wastages, garbage from shops, nursing homes and institutes is also dumped in this area, so it has become unhygienic for residents.
It is a well-known fact that for a healthy living and a disease-free society the most important requirement is to have a clean and pollution-free society.
The cleanliness drive undertaken by the authorities is only on paper because we don’t see it on ground level as yet.
Right outside the Cidco building, filth has been accumulating with garbage bins overflowing and open drains and nullahs getting choked.
It’s a horrible sight for any passerby and the smell is just intolerable.
It is high time that the authorities realise the importance of maintaining cleanliness in the city.
There is an urgent need to undertake cleanliness drives in all sector of New Panvel ahead of the before festivals.
