Clean Up Bengaluru petition garners 1 lakh signatures

An online petition - Clean Up Bengaluru - has garnered over  one  lakh  signatures.

The petition aims to make the city's administration take notice of the harm caused by the  mindless dumping of garbage across the city.

It had initially aimed at only 75,000 signatures.  

What began as a plea to create awareness has turned into a movement, with people from across the country signing the petition to rid Bengaluru of garbage.

According to Badrinath Vittal, who started the petition, the stink of uncleared waste dumps has become a daily affair. He said obnoxious fumes from burning plastic and infections caused by medical waste and the ever-increasing wet garbage posed a threat to public health.  

Awanti Sambarey, who signed the petition, said the Garden City is turning into a garbage city and residents are unable to do anything about it. She also highlighted the corporation's responsibility to ensure the effective implementation of waste management.

When the petition reaches 1.5 lakh signatures, it will be handed over to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
