Early Times Report
Jammu, May 19: Perturbed by the shocking declaration of Jammu being the dirtiest city by Union H&UD Ministry recently, a strong contingent of Panther volunteers led by Harsh Dev Singh and other leaders conducted cleanliness drive at Nai Basti and its adjoining areas in ward 23 today under Swachh Jammu Abhiyan.
The volunteers carrying brooms, spades and sacs cleaned the streets and lanes; picked up the plastic waste, polythene material and garbage to dump them into the local Municipal waste container for disposal.
They were shocked to see the demolished culverts all over the filthy sewer line running through the area which had wrecked havoc in the entire ward. NPP leaders educated the local shop keepers and residents about the harmful effects of the exposed 'nallah' on human health and asked them to stand united to get rid of the menace.
Astounded by the pathetic condition of the ward, Harsh Dev Singh chairman JKNPP said that the Municipal authorities had senselessly and whimsically demolished the culverts over the running sewer line which had exposed the nallah containing tonnes of human, animal and plastic waste.
Surprised by the heaps of garbage and solid waste scattered all over the streets of Nai Basti and its adjoining areas, he said that the dangerous unhygienic condition of the ward 23 had posed a grave threat to the public health and sanitation which would further worsen during the monsoons.
Balwant Singh Mankotia and Yash Paul Kundal expressed shock over the mass dumping of untreated waste into the river Tawi every day, highly deficient and defective drainage system, open pits and leakages of water supply pipes, lack of sewage treatment plants, scattered solid waste, etc. which had endangered the environment and posed a serious hazard to human health in Jammu city.
Prominent among those who volunteered the drive included Rajesh Padgotra, Gagan Pratap, Parshotam Parihar, Atul Mahajan, Nirmal Kishore, Bodh Raj, Rohit Sharma, Paramjit Marshal, Partap Singh, Rashpaul Singh, Mohinder Singh, Narinder Sharma, Rohit Gupta, Pankaj Kapoor, Mithun, Sonu Sharma besides others.
