Address near posh areas, village still remains filthy

SAS Nagar


The Mohali village, near Phase 1, in SAS Nagar district lies sandwiched between the posh areas of Mohali — the residential areas of Phase 6 and Phase 1 — yet it seems light years away from civilisation, if the state of cleanliness in any indication.

Residents of the village are, again, themselves to blame as they litter without a care or worry in the world. Administrative apathy, of course, ensures that no preventive or awareness drive has been undertaken, leaving the residents to their own devices.

Danger of diseases

With no waste disposal system in place, most dumps have turned fetid and are a fount of diseases.
The uncovered drains of the narrow streets stink badly. Even as officially the dumping ground of the village lies outside its boundary, the daily waste of houses is simply left to rot outside.
