Residents of Sohna Road have alleged that
a number of private developers and contractors have been dumping and burning
garbage in the open on a four-acre piece of land near the upscale Nirvana
Country, posing a serious threat to public health. According to them, the burning
of waste in the open leads to discharge of poisonous gases, impacting the
health of residents, particularly triggering asthma and respiratory diseases.
And, the civic authorities, they claim, are turning a blind eye .
