The smoke that comes with the burning of garbage causes pollution and affects our health too.” “The GHMC workers do not clean the garbage regularly. People from the nearby areas throw their garbage here. When the workers are asked to remove the garbage from the plot, the usual response is given by them is that the GHMC van would come and remove them. Neither the workers remove the garbage nor do the GHMC vans come to remove it,” said V Kalpana, another resident.
