Hyderabad: Dumping of pet waste irritates RK Puram locals
Hyderabad: Indiscriminate unloading of pet waste at the RK Puram Lake by regional abattoirs has actually been making the life of locals unpleasant as a result of the stink originating from it. Locals declared that regardless of offering numerous grievances to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), no activity has actually been taken.
They mooted that the slaughtering happens every early morning as well as all the waste is disposed near the lake.This unlawful unloading is triggering challenge to passersby as well as locals as the garbage disposed near the lake is not eliminated from the story as well as generally burned there itself. The smoke that follows shedding the waste is resulting in contamination as well as influencing theirhealth
“We have been facing this issue since the past two years.Animal waste is been dumped on the lanes making it difficult for the residents to breathe fresh air. We are forced to stay indoors as the smell is unbearable and the dump is being burnt there itself causing a lot of air pollution. We have requested the GHMC to send a notice to slaughterhouses who are dumping waste in our colony as many have also reported health issues,” claimed Mukesh, local of RKPuram Colony
“The waste that is been dumped near the lake is getting mixed with drain water that routinely overflows from the outlet near RK Puram lake and the stink is unbearable and is also leading to an increase in pig and mosquito menaces. We donot know when the lake will get developed as the worksare going on at a snail’s pace.A walking track that has been laid near the lake will be no use if the dumping of waste continues. It is very unfortunate that the GHMC officials are not taking any action against slaughterhouses even after submitting many representations to the concerned officials,” claimed Robin, one more local.
