The Hush Post: Left with no other option, harried residents of Zirakpur, a suburb of the Chandigarh tricity, held a protest against the municipal council for not providing them proper garbage disposal in the town. Various housing societies got together and held a protest march from the Kohinoor dhabha to the MC office.
They raised slogans against the MC authorities for not having a proper means of garbage disposal in the area. Since last one week, the door to door collection had been stopped by the sanitation staff due to lack of space to dispose off the garbage. The sanitation association also joined them in the protest.
As a mark of protest and to bring the issue to the notice of the MC authorities, many residents carry garbage bags and dispose them off in the MC office.
The residents’ association has threatened the authorities that they would block the roads on May 1, if no action is taken till then.
Zirakpur is a fast-growing part of the tricity where a lot of residential colonies and housing projects have sprung up and property prices have rocketed up fast.
