Police stop cleanliness drive, seize machinery
A large number of people including Junaid Jamshed have gathered outside the Jamshed Quarters police station to protest against the action. They vowed that they will take the responsibility to clean the city on a self-help basis as the authorities have been negligent in their duties.
The metropolis produces around 13,800 tons of trash daily which is dumped on just two landfill sites of 500 acres each, which is highly insufficient for an city of 22 million people. There are also inadequate machinery and other cleanliness facilities by local authorities.
