Where can I afford to go at this age?" 78-year-old Sharat Chandragupta says. A resident of Sukdev Vihar, Pocket A, for 20 years, Chandragupta is among several others whose health has been affected by the waste-to-energy plant in Okhla. The plant is owned by Jindal Urban Infrastructure Ltd, a company of Jindal SAW Group Ltd. Residents have protested against the plant, which has been emitting excessive toxic ash. "Even if we let the windows open for a while, there will be a thick layer of ash inside the flat. Sore throat and breathlessness are regular health problems now," Chandragupta adds.
