Karnal, October 26
Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s appeal to sanitation workers to resume their work and maintain cleanliness on Diwali fell on deaf ears as their strike continued on Tuesday also, which was the sixth day of their strike across the state.
With the stir, thousands of tonnes of trash have been littered on every nook and corner of the city, waiting to be lifted. The situation aggravated after people burst crackers on Diwali and the trash was not lifted on Tuesday morning. Heaps of garbage could be seen all over the city, “welcoming” the residents in the morning.
