Domestic garbage hits human life
According to municipality sources, the townpeople dump their waste in and around the dustbin. As a result, the road littered with the garbage, which is polluting the town, emit awfully bad odours, making it difficult to breathe in the air. “To get released from this suffering players of the district along with local people are going to organise demonstration against the municipality, said Farhad Hossain Koli, general secretary of Habiganj District Krira Sangstha. Koli said: “Sports loving people of the district do not come at the stadium to watch games due to bad smells coming off from the dustbin.” Claiming that they have already requested authorities concerned to clear the waste from the road, he said: “If the municipality authorities do not solve this problem within November, then will call an all out strike agonist the authorities.” Locals said, people of the municipality have been dumping household waste at a dustbin on Bypass road of the town for a long time. Everyday thousands of people including students of Brindaban Government College, players of the district and others use the road. Tofazzel Sohel, general secretary of Bangladesh Poribesh Andolon (BAPA), said: “The people and students cannot move along the Bypass road due to decomposed organic materials on the road.” Blaming municipality authorities for their negligence to build fixed dustbins, Sohel said: “The dumped waste also caused water logging in the town.” Expressing his concerns over the unscientific and improper management of municipal solid waste, describing it as hazardous to human health, lawyer Uzzal Ahmed, a resident of the town, said: “Bad smells coming off the garbage from the dustbins, making it difficult to breathe in the air.” He also alleged that municipality authorities are not aware to ease people’s sufferings. Rowsho Sultana, a student of Brindaban Government College, urged to municipality authorities to clean the road to ease their suffering caused by home waste. Dilip Dash, acting mayor of Habiganj municipality said: “We are trying to shift the dustbin to another place to ease people’s sufferings.”
