“From 6 June, seven trucks of Municipal department came and threw the waste materials every day. Then we had approached to higher authority, but no response from them till date,” he said.
At the same time, Pu Pekhmunchau, an ecologist also commented that ‘if this old cemetery area will be wasted rubbish or trash place, it will pollute environment in near future.’
