Residents Raise Over Waste Treatment Plant
Residents of Electronics City Phase II and surrounding villages on Saturday protested forming Human Chain outside the BBMP solid waste management treatment plant in Chikkanagamangala.
Armed with placards and slogans, they demanded the foul odor be contending and air quality monitoring equipment will be install near the plant.
Mamatha M, an environmental engineer with BBMP and in charge of Chikkanagamangala, committs the radicals that a meeting between the natives and BBMP health officials will soon be open.
“The official says to conduct a meeting with BBMP additional commissioner (health) D Randeep in the first week of January, but we don’t have much hope. When we protested in October, we’re given similar assurance,”said Pranay Dubey, a resident of the nearby Bren Woods apartment.
