Okhla’s Jamia Nagar is in bad shape. It is usual to see animal carcass rotting on roadsides with work going as usual and nobody concerned.
The case in point is a dog carcass left unattended for days just a few metres from newly built swanky Radiance building, on Jamaat-E-Islami (Hind) campus.
Worse, a small bridge is being built nearby and things are going as usual with nobody bothered to get the carcass removed. Moreover, a few metres from the spot is located Al-Shifa hospital. What has left some residents shocked that the development is taking place at a time when there is such a hullabaloo over cleanliness following reported deaths of several people due to dengue in Jamia Nagar, a deprived locality where politicians and political aspirants love to play blame game rather than getting down to some real work.
“This is nothing pathetic. Hundreds of residents pass from there every day putting hands on their nose so as to avoid the stink coming from the dog carcass. Nobody is bothered. Where are the officials? Just a few metres from here is located Al Shifa hospital and work is going on in the recently build Rs 4 crore Radiance building. But should we blame them for this? I don’t think so as it is work of the civic agencies to keep the area clean,” said a resident.
Earlier, too on several occasions it has been found the animal carcass rotting on the roads for days until it evaporates in the air or get mixed in the dust.
