Although the NGT Monitoring Committee on Solid Waste Management is touring Noida area for tightening screws on possible violations by the authorities themselves, Gr Noida based environment activist Vikrant Tongad has alleged that waste material is being dumped at and further being burnt at village Khodna Khurd in Gr Noida area. This is being done near the 130-mt-wide road, said the activist who also clicked some photos of the incident.
When delhincrnews.in called up Senior Manager of Gr Noida Authority (read GNIDA) he said that the village Khodna Khurd does not come under his jurisdiction and gave the no. of one other official who did not pick the phone. Earlier one Assistant Manager said that he was not part of the authority anymore, although these officials’ numbers are given in the official directory of GNIDA with jurisdiction of Khodna Khurd mentioned against their names.
