City residents on Thursday urged the district administration to relocate makeshift animal hides godowns from residential area as they were polluting the environment.
Various organizations collect animal hides of sacrified animals and store them at different sites in the city areas including Jamia Masjid Road, Pir Choha Chowk, Ratta Amral, Ghaznavi Road and mostly congested areas of the city, which are potential threat for outbreak of several diseases.
Talking to APP, Zafar Sheikh a resident of Pir Choha said the hides were stored in godowns for several months which not only pollutes the environment, but also are hurdle in smooth flow of traffic. He said it created difficulties for the residents to move in the area without a mask.
Another resident Sheikh Rasheed of Jamia Masjid Road said the government should relocate the makeshift godowns from residential areas, expressing the hope that district government would take the required steps in that regard.—APP
