Open plot near Kubera Park becomes dumping zone

16/02/2019

The open plot outside Kubera Park has become a dumping zone. Since its owned by Pune Cantonment Board, PMC is unable to maintain it.


There are heaps of garbage which is set on fire by passerby who dump the waste.

R Pansare, secretary of the society told Pune Pulse that the plot is owned by Pune Cantonment Board. Hence, PMC cannot intervene and do anything. Ever since the garbage container from our society gate towards the slum area has been removed passerby are dumping waste on this plot. This waste is also set on fire causing pollution.

Sainath Babar, local corporator of Kondhwa, PMC told Pune Pulse that the plot belongs to PCB and PMC cannot take any action over it. From my end, I shall write a letter to them requesting them to maintain cleanliness on the plot. Previously, when we decided to do clean up, we were asked to stop the work.

Chandraprakash Maheshwari, chairman of Kubera Park society complained to Pune Pulse that the plot is owned by Cantonment department. But they are not even maintaining basic hygiene. People from surrounding feel that its a neglected plot and dump waste on it. Some even lit fire over it. The air pollution is a big trouble for us. It is not just plastc or wet waste, there are tyres, plastic bottles, liquor bottles which are also set on fire.

Ashish Sankpal, treasurer of the society said, “We have been waiting for some cleanliness which can take place. That is the main entry and exit for us. We have to always go through this dirt. We really need some strong support from PCB atleast towards maintaining cleanliness on the plot. Such unhygienic conditions is making our lives unhealthy. Our complaints have never been heard.”

Shaikh Rajmohammad, an official from MES told Pune Pulse that clean up of the plot shall be conducted soon.
