Cleanliness no where

It seems the Municipal Council, Tarn Taran, is not serious about providing basic facilities, particularly clean environment to the residents. The installation of garbage containers quite on the road sides in the town in an unplanned manner was not only the blunder at the part of the council but it had been making the environment polluted. The residents have been regularly demanding to install the containers at appropriate place but the authorities are not ready to act even a little. The council has installed one container near the residence of the SSP. There are offices of Powercom on the main road of the town and sweepers from the nearby localities put garbage in this container. The container filled with garbage in the early morning hours and thereafter it dotted around the container which reaches in the middle of the road by the end of the day. The residents have appealed the authorities to appoint permanent employee to manage the garbage and install more garbage bins to get rid of the problem. The municipal authorities are not ready to compromise at a single option even. The same is the position at the Railway Road, Deep Avenue and others places.
