Sonepat, October 29
The ongoing strike by sanitation workers has led to the piling up of garbage at various places in the city. The situation is worsening by the day.
Notably, the sanitation workers have been on strike since October 19 to press for the fulfilment of their demands across the state. On Friday, they burnt an effigy of ULB Minister Kamal Gupta at Subhash Chowk in the city. The employees took out a march from the MC office to Subhash Chowk raising anti-government slogans.
Heaps of garbage can be seen on almost all roads. The foul smell emanating from these garbage heaps has made people’s life miserable.
According to sources, around 200-tonne garbage is generated in the city daily. Heaps of garbage can be seen at Dayal Chowk, bus stand chowk, old DC road, Sector 14, Shani temple, vegetable market and other areas in the city.
