Dispose of waste scientifically: MP

MP Pratap Simha on Saturday urged Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) officials to take measures to dispose of waste in a scientific manner.

The MP was addressing the MCC officials at a meeting organised to discuss the issue of solid waste management plant at Vidyaranyapuram.

Simha said it is the MCC's responsibility to protect the health of the citizens and thus, the waste should be managed in a scientific way, without creating problems to the residents.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting, the MP said the waste generated in the city is being dumped at Sewage Farm and the authorities can manage only 150 tonnes of waste everyday. Due to accumulation of the waste, foul smell is emanated, creating panic among the residents. "I have asked the authorities to spray Bioenzymes to control the bad smell," the MP said.

Simha stated that foul smell has been reduced at the Sewage Farm after the chemical was sprayed. He said that he will approach hotel owners, asking them to segregate the waste at the source itself.

Simha asked MCC Commissioner G Jagadeesha to withdraw the cases filed against the people who obstructed the MCC personnel from dumping the waste at Vidyaranyapuram.

Jagadeesha said the city has nine zero waste management units and eight of them are not working. During the meeting, heated arguments broke out between BJP and Congress party corporators.

Deputy Mayor Rathna Lakshman, corporators B L Bhyrappa, Nandeesh Preetham, and K V Mallesh were present.
