Mumbai (Maharashtra) Mar. 22 (ANI): The Congress Party on Tuesday staged a protest against the Devendra Fadnavis-led Maharashtra Government with regard to the fire at Deonar dumping ground.
The protestors raised anti-government slogans and denounced the state government at the BMC Commissioner’s Office.
“On 28th January 2016, fire erupted at Deonar dumping ground. This troubled the common of Mumbai, especially the ones living in the nearby areas it became difficult to breathe for them in the poisonous air. We thought that the BMC took some effective measures but yet again the dumping ground is on fire. They are not doing anything. The government has made life of common like garbage,” Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam told ANI here.
The residents near the Deonar dumping ground continued to suffer for the third day in a row on Tuesday as the poisonous smoke engulfed the entire area, affecting the air quality and making it difficult to breathe.
The fire that broke out at Mumbai’s Deonar dumping ground earlier on Sunday, intensified later and spread to around two-three square kilometres. (ANI)
