BHOPAL: The proper sanitation in the state capital has always been a challenging for the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) administration which has largely failed to remove garbage timely and regularly. If it is removed in the morning, the garbage containers get filled to the capacity again by noon and by the evening stray animals scatter around the dumped garbage. It is regular scene of 45-Bunglows.
Ultimately, people blame the BMC administration as they always find the dumped garbage scattered around.
Fast food vendors also make a big contribution to it as they keep on dumping disposable plates and left over to garbage container which overflows by the evening. Rest of the job is done by the stray animals. Anyway, local residents have to suffer the stench from garbage which also provides a breeding ground to disease causing insects.
People have suggested the BMC administration to reviews its priority instead of adopting in auto-mode style. It would be better to review the priority and focus to implement it, they said, adding, “Water supply and proper sanitation are two major tasks of BMC being the local government and civic body.”
We have to contact local corporator several times to ensure proper sanitation. We raised the issue of stray animals which should be rounded up as they scatter the dumped garbage. If stray animals are rounded up, garbage will remain dumped till morning.”- Shaqeel Hussain, 45, employee of a private firm
Lifting garbage in time should be top priority of BMC administration which remains engaged in other work instead of focusing on main job. If it is not removed in morning, it continues to stink which is problematic to passers- by. BMC officials should review their priority and then focus on it, which will improve its image in public. At present, BMC is just like jack of all, but master of none.”- Shahwar Khan, 30, builder
Instead of depending on BMC administration, it would be better to take initiative on oneself and dump garbage in bigger container so that it would not spoil ambiance. We should motivate other local people in this matter for proper sanitation.”- Javed, 32, employee of a private company
