Letter to Editor: Swachh Bharat mission, an eyewash.


Dear editor,

I am impressed by the way you cover things of different aspects of daily life which are of utmost importance & significance as far as legitimate rights of Jammuites are concerned. One such critical aspect is that of sanitation scenario of our Jammu municipal area. If you observe, will see heaps of garbage & muck everywhere in our city which is also called the city of temples but JMC has done so much to change its name as the city of garbage.

One such case you will see if you ever pass through circular road near DC office which has become a dumping ground due to negligence of JMC officials. Most important is that the same road is followed by devotees who used to go historical temple of Lord Shiva at Pirkho which is just opposite to JMC collection point. Right from the entrance of the temple to the point at dc office, the whole area is covered with garbage spillover.

You please take a round of that area after 2:30 pm & will see the efficiency of JMC in maintaining sanitation and hygiene standards of the city. No matter whether Covid 19 Pandemic is at its peak or not but JMC is just playing with health of general public.

This is just one case we have so many such points in the city.

Hope for early action in this regard.


Yours sincerely,

On behalf of residents of Pirkho & adjoining area.

Avtrar Singh
