Sheeshambada locals to protest in Doon from today
The locals of Sheeshambada start protest in Dehradun on Wednesday against the departments concerned regarding the city’s solid waste management and recycling plant. The locals will also start a public awareness campaign to make the citizens aware of the alleged harassment of locals by the government.
“The residents of Sheeshambada are quite aggravated by the attitude of the departments which were approached by us but nothing has been done regarding the dumping of the garbage by Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) without NOC. Therefore, we will protest against all the departments concerned with the operation of the plant in the area in addition to undertaking an awareness campaign through which the public will be made aware of our harassment for the sake of garbage dumping in solid waste management and recycling plant,” said one of the residents Satpal Dhaniya.
He further added that the District Magistrate (DM) and the officers of Uttarakhand Environment Protection and Pollution Control Board (UEPPCB) will also be made aware of the anomalies at the plant which are affecting hundreds of lives every day.
Locals have also warned to protest outside the chief minister’s residence and to approach the court if still no decision is taken by the state government.
It is pertinent to mention here that the locals of Sheeshambada have been alleging for past few months that the plant is causing several health problems in addition to noise pollution and foul smell. However, these allegations have been refuted by municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey and the project manager of the solid waste management and recycling plant MA Saify.
