Hon. Shomide who expressed deep concern for the destruction of the rains that led to the loss of millions of properties maintained that the effect of the flooding could have been curbed if necessary steps were taken by the clumsy residents if they could decline dumping of refuse on the waterways; for the amounts of refuse on the waterways largely prevented the free-flows of the cascades.
The Council boss, thereafter, urged the residents who were affected by the waterfall to desist from dumping refuse on the waterways for the I don’t care attitudes inflict the havoc in the society, adding that the State Government will frown at such actions of the residents who discard the policies of government on environmental order.
