Varanasi garbage dumped at secret spots by VMC

After protests by the villagers in Ramana, the Varanasi Municipal Corporation (VMC) has been dumping waste at temporary secret places, revealed the municipal commissioner.

Municipal commissioner Umakant Tripathi had denied to give the name of these places. After protests by villagers of Ramana and steady door-to-door collection drive, VMC had no choice but to dump waste at other places, he added.

"When VMC workers and inspectors reached Ramana dumping site on Wednesday night to put down smoke billowing from the garbage yard which dumped few days back, the villagers again started the stir which forced us to return. I have spoken to district magistrate Pranjal Yadav and he will convene a meeting with villagers on Thursday", Tripathi said.

Thousands of natives of Ramana village started protesting against dumping of garbage and burning it there. On April 5, they staged demonstration in protest against the pollution caused by burning of waste, which causes health hazards. The agitators refused to talk to VMC officials, who reached the site to pacify them and did not allow entry of garbage-laden vehicles in Ramana.

Meanwhile, a cleanliness drive was carried out by Saket Sewa Samiti at Saket Nagar colony as sanitary workers have failed to carry out door-to-door garbage collection in the locality.

On Wednesday, members of the committee were seen blowing whistles and collecting waste from houses. The members were also found sweeping the road from Sankat Mochan Temple to Saket Nagar colony.

The members have decided to carry out this campaign every Sunday.
