Inqilab March Leaves Behind Mounds Of Garbage In Lahore And Islamabad


The area surrounding Tahir-ul-Qadri’s residence, the Minhaj-ul-Quran secretariat, and M-Block international market has been transformed into a garbage dump by those participating in the Inqilab march. Mounds of accumulated garbage heaps and a terrible odor have made it very difficult for residents to cross through the area. There are also fears of diseases and infections spreading because of poor hygiene of the area. According to reports, the volunteers and Awami Tehreek participants of the march were camped out in the park for at least a month. Their living and eating arrangements were confined to the park. A survey of the area reveals left over wrappers, bottles, torn clothes, food containers, and other miscellaneous items.
