‘Shopian Bonabazar Public Park’ turns into dumping site
Messy condition of the park affecting health of nearby water body
Shopian, Dec 21: A newly developed public park at Bonabazar Shopian near Sumo Stand has been literally turned into a dumping site as the place is littered with all sorts of waste material. The messy condition of the park is also affecting the health of a water body flowing across one side of the park.
Locals told ‘Kashmir Images’ that due to the lack of dumping facilities in the area, the waste material is being littered near the park.
One of the residents of Shopian Town, Advocate Owais Ahmad Khan, said: “The district administration should take some steps for maintaining the cleanliness of the park and it should also adopt measures to limit and control direct pollutant discharges into water bodies.”
“Municipal Committee (MC) Shopian seems to be in deep slumber as its officials have been turning a blind eye towards the issue,” he added.
When contacted Executive Officer Municipal Committee, Shopian said: “I will take necessary steps to solve the issue.
