Mosquito menace: Funds for fogging underused by BBMP 9.2.2017 deccanherald.com

If you are wondering what are the odds, the answer is that Kumar is a resident of Safeda Basti in east Delhi.  The illegal squatter settlement on the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) land, which has been notified by the Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board (DUSIB), has been facing issues of sanitation, including open drains and defecation, and water supply for years now. “Several diseases arise because of the lack of cleanliness in the area. The drains are not covered and the Municipal corporation works according to its will. The workers come once in two months to clean the drains but they simply sieve out the filth and leave it on the roads, making it difficult for us to even breathe,” said Anju Devi, a resident of Safeda Basti. The other major problem that the residents face is the lack of toilets. Public toilets open at 6 am and shut as early as 10 pm, forcing people to defecate in the ...
