Your photo on waste may make MCC work

Is there a mount of waste near your house? If yes, better click a photo and mail it to Mysore Grahakara Parishat (MGP), for a contest organised to highlight the failure of Mysore City Corporation (MCC) in dealing with the problem.

The contest titled ‘Kasada photo spardhe’ (photography contest on waste) also aims at sending a warning to the officers, who resort to lip service as and when there is a complaint from concerned citizens.

Mahesh and Prasad S A of MGP told Deccan Herald, when all our efforts to make officials act over the raging issue failed, it was decided to plan for an unique way to whip the local body. After much deliberation, an exclusive contest to hold mirror to the apathy of officials was mooted.

Prasad said, the city may have been adjudged second best city (for cleanliness) after Chandigarh in the recent past, but still ‘disposal of waste has remained a permanent problem’.

Earlier, MGP had supported another such protest against potholes, organised by a local organisation, by planting saplings in potholes.

Contestants may send three entries (three photos) each. First prize will be Rs 1,000, second prize- Rs 500 and third prize Rs 250. There is no entry fee. Entries will be not received through post. Mail them to mygrapa@gmail.com along with your details. The last date is July 31. Contact 0821-2515150.
