The environment of Defence Lahore Cantt is getting more and more dust ridden each day. The worst example is the road passing between DD and CC sectors of Phase-4. The heavy overloaded trucks issue from the under construction plaza on the above road and spew freshly dug earth along the road which gets stirred up by passing vehicles and pollutes the environment causing distress to people living in the surroundings. There is no system of proper loading of trucks to cover the dug out dirt in trucks resulting in polluted air all round the premises. The DHA authorities ought to monitor the situation to bring it under control so as to spare the residents from serious health hazards. -DR M.YAQOOB BHATTI, Lahore, via e-mail, January 21.
