    K Ramachandra Achar from Kuvempunagar Mysore 1598 Days ago

    We are staying In a bunglow near Bahmasthan Kalyana Mantapa at the junction of Chaduranga road /Bisilu Maramma junction at TK Layout in Kuvempunagar.Just opposite to our house on the other side of Chaduranga Road and exactly on the back side entrance of Taralabalu Education Trust School there is a huge dumping yard for the garbage collected from the various places from Mysore city.The dumping of garbage by small tempos and lifting of the huge collection of garbageby big garbage collection municipality trucks continues throughout the day.As a result the area has become very dirty emanating bad smell besides giving shelter to mosquitos in this predominantly residentiaĺ cum school area.A photo taken by me of the site attached.Will some responsible Govt.officials visit this site urgently and save the law abiding residents of this area.Thanks and RegardsK Ramachandra Achar.
