Chandigarh, October 12

Councillor Hardeep Singh, along with villagers, protested outside the Municipal Corporation office over the issue of hefty waste collection charges.

The villagers said they had been getting unreasonable bills of waste collection. They raised slogans outside the building showing their bills.

“We are getting bills worth Rs1000-Rs2000 and even more than that just for door-to-door waste collection. Ealier, we used to pay Rs100,” said a resident.

The councillor later met MC Commissioner Anindita Mitra who assured him of doing the needful.
