A group of residents protesting against the construction of the landfill in Sector 123 met Akhilesh Yadav, the Samajwadi Party chief and the former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh in Delhi on Wednesday, as they feel let down by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his government, who had said that any landfill site should be at least 2 km from any from an area of habitation, but Noida Authority is seen not to be relenting on the matter. According to the residents, despite orders from Yogi to ministers and officials of the Noida Authority to look into the landfill issue in Sector 123, the meeting between officials and the residents on Tuesday remained inconclusive as the Noida Authority only tried to convince them that it is not a dump yard but a sanitary landfill (SLF) site. "Akhilesh Yadav extended his support to us and asked us to move court and take legal action. We are waiting for the court to end its summer vacation on July 2, so that we can file a petition with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) ...
