The health hazards due to burning garbage at the Deonar dumping ground has flared up again. This time the residents of Ghatkoper took out a protest and gheraoed the officials of MCGM as the smoke emancipating has taken many locals ill. The agitated protestors gheraoed the MCGM officials at the N ward in Ghatkoper venting out their frustration. For the past many months, fire is caused at the Deonar dumping ground which has been continuously releasing methane gas in the air. This has taken a serious toll on the locals and the stench has even affected areas like Ghatkoper. The locals allege that MCGM does not even have water tankers to settle down the smoke. The smoke has enveloped Garodia Nagar, Sudh Park, Kamraaj and many other areas of Ghatkoper making life miserable for the residents. Serious ailments like Asthama, lung infection and cancer is on a high rise here. The officials however have no answer to the problems of the residents who have threatened that if the civic body does not find a solution soon to their problem, they would not pay property tax.
