I live in Garden East locality (Patel Para). There was a time when I used to look up and see the sky glittering with thousands of stars, whereas now the only thing I can spot is the sky high buildings. There is always a new building coming up in every corner of our area. Recently the construction of a new building has stolen the space for the garbage container that had been serving the locality for several years, now garbage is strewn all over the streets, as people have no place to dump their garbage. The bin has been moved to the next street and now we have to carry our garbage to the next lane. The streets are filled with plastic bags full of garbage in front of houses, giving mosquitoes and other virus a healthy place to live. They are in heaven! I would like to request city authorities to look into the matter and make some garbage bins and disposal available to the locality.
