Chandigarh, September 8

While the tally of dengue cases increasing day by day in city, there is no improvement in the sanitary conditions. Be it wild growth, dumped malba or heaps of garbage in different parts of the city, the civic body has turned a blind eye towards sanitary conditions in the city.

A visit to various parts of the city reveals wild growth in vacant land and green belts. In Sector 29, there is a huge wild growth and people have also dumped malba on the ground. The situation is similar in Sector 45 where forest area on the dividing road of Sector 45 and 50 have also turned into a garbage-dumping and malba-dumping ground.

Pooja Thakur, a resident of Sector 45, said these areas had become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Echoing a similar view, Seema, a resident of Sector 39, said there was also a wild growth in their area but nobody clears the same.

Residents complain that safai karamcharis also did not come regularly. Rajinder Pandey, a resident of Sector 44, said: "Safaikaramcharis did not come on a regular basis in our area. Nobody lifts heaps of garbage from open areas of the sector, he said.

The authories were carrying out sanitation drive in various areas like Industrial Area to improve the sanitation system, Mayor Arun Sood said. On wild growth, he said they were regularly maintaining green belts but during the rainy season a wild growth came up on a vacant land and it was being managed by the UT Administration.
