Residents of Adarsh Welfare Lane on Thursday sat on dharna outside the Municipal Corporation camp office, protesting against no action against a factory being run by one Amar sweets. According to the residents, they had complained to the MC authorities a number of times that the factory was being run in the residential area but no action had been taken against them.
Jagdish Ram, one of the residents, said, "We had complained about this factory a number of times, and the complaints have been pending for the past three years. The sweet factory staff throw the entire waste in the sewer which chokes it regularly. Hence, the entire area faces problems on a regular basis."
The residents said the MC authorities had sealed this factory once, but the factory again became operational.
MC Commissioner R K Verma assured the protesters to take an appropriate action on their complaint.
However, the residents expressed dissatisfaction over the MC Commissioner's reply. They said they would be intensifying their stir in future and would meet the higher officials in Chandigarh if no action was taken at the local level.
