He exclaimed that they cannot afford one meal a day, how can they spend on toilets? Hence the people have no option rather than to use the streets for bathing and latrine.

  • Another person said that there are some empty areas which are allotted for parks but even they are filled with garbage as there are only 5 garbage points of which people only use 3. Also, the garbage is not picked up by the authorities regularly which has led to its overflow.
