Foul smell makes life miserable for Shailkupa residents

OUR CORRESPONDENT, Jhenidah
Foul smell makes life miserable for Shailkupa residents

People of Shailkua municipality in Jhenidah are leading a miserable life due to health hazards posed by dirt and filth.  

The condition of dustbins overflowing with garbage is so pathetic that they have now turned into breeding grounds of mosquitos and other insects. Locals say though the municipality authorities have set up a number of dustbins to throw garbage and waste,  those are not cleaned for months together.This leads to foul smell of rotten garbage, making life miserable for the residents.

Akmal Hossain and Bashir Uddin, both locals, said the municipal authorities refrain from cleaning the dustbins at Kabirpur Upazila Health Complex Point for months together. The garbage starts to rot and there is foul smell all around.

Shailkupa municipality mayor Kazi Asharful Azam rubbished charges of negligence in cleaning dustbins in the municipal area.

He said the dustbins were not cleaned for the past few weeks as the officials and employees of the municipality abstained from work to press home their demands. "Things will improve once they resume their duties," he added.
