Zirakpur (JS Kaler)

Tall claims of the Municipal Counsil to make Zirakpur a clean and green city stand exposed with residents of VIP Road, Gazipur Road, Dhakoli area and baltana which happens to be President Kulwinder Sohi's residential area, ruing lack of cleanliness resulting in a protest march. 

 Although under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, the Central Government has launched Swachhata-MoUD (Ministry of Urban Development) app for the facilitation of city residents through which people just have to take a photograph of the garbage and upload it on the app. The photograph will reach the MC and within 12 hours, the officials concerned will have to address the complaint. Moreover, after cleaning the information will be sent to the MC EO via e-mail. 

But, unfortunately the Central Government’s various initiatives taken in the process to make ‘Swachh Bharat’ a success, the MC failed to provide relief to residents from sewage overflow, accumulation of garbage and stagnant water. 

Residents alleged that despite lodging so many complaints regarding the sewage overflow, problems like accumulation of garbage and stagnant water in front of houses had not been fixed by MC employees. As a result avalanche of outrage set to culminate in a protest march where thousands of residents are expected tomorrow.
