Cricketer Yuvraj Singh has extended support to residents of DLF City protesting against the continuous dumping of garbage close to residential areas around the Aravalli range.
Yuvraj joined around 100 other DLF residents in a protest march near the DLF I- Faridabad crossing on Monday. "He owns a house in DLF Phase I's F block. He readily agreed to support our cause after some residents approached him," Ambika Agarwal, a resident of G block, said.
The issue of illegal garbage disposal has been in the making for over two years now. Residents say the Haryana Urban Development yuvraj singh house in gurgaon photos Authority (HUDA) dumps over 325 metric tons of untreated garbage within an 800-metre radius of residential complexes. They say innumerable appeals to the civic body, and litigation against the Gurgaon administration regarding the need for proper disposal in the area, have failed to have an effect.
"The stench, rodents and insects, and the consequent health hazards, have made life hell and despite our efforts to check this practice, the authorities are simply ignoring the issue," Rohit Sarin, another resident, said. "Huda authorities have no alternate site. They do not wish to shift the garbage to the earmarked site in Badhwari, as they are planning a state-of-the-art landfill there," he said.
Officials say an efficient solid waste management plant will soon come up at Badhwari village. "It might be another two years before the plant starts working," P Kumra, HUDA superintendent engineer, said.
