Lakshmipuram residents stage protest against lack of waste management

Mysuru, June 11:- The residents of Lakshmipuram 2nd Cross Street on Monday staged a unique protest against public representatives, alleging they have neglected cleanliness of the area. They staged a mock inauguration of open defecation by public representatives at Narayana Shastry main road.

“Mysuru which was once the cleanest city in India lost its pride two years ago. Negligence by Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) is the reason behind it. People are finding it hard to commute in the area due to bad smell. With people dumping garbage here, the place lacks cleanliness and stagnant water can be seen everywhere. None of the officials have visited the spot or tried to solve the problems. If no action is taken, we will lay siege to the MCC,” said Ajay Shastry, a resident.

“Officials get their photos clicked with broomsticks during Swachh Bharat campaign. They are indifferent when it comes to real problems. There is no proper drainage system in Lakshmipuram and no proper waste management either,” said a resident of Lakshmipuram, Jayasimha Sridhar.

Residents of Lakshmipuram, Anupama, Gowramma, Sandhya, Nanjumalige Basappa, Ranganath, Umesh, Ravi, Harish and others were present. (MR/KS).
