Unclean Belgaum beautiful Belgaum

7:15 PM Posted by ukmad

“Swach Belgaum Sundar Belgaum” I read this somewhere written by the corporation. It means Clean Belgaum Beautiful Belgaum.

While going around in the night on Thursday to see Ganpati’s I took the below photo at Kadolkar Galli-Ganpat Galli corner. All the vegetable waste is seen lying in the centre of the road. There are thousands of people moving around to see the Ganpati’s and while passing by have to close their noses and pass.

There have been huge hoardings been put up by the corporation on swine flu in which keep yourself hygienic is mentioned. But who will keep the roads hygienic?

Personal hygiene is ok but what about social hygiene. The health department should look into such matters seriously and not as part of daily routine and clean up this stuff daily.
