En­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - AYESHA FA­TIMA

En­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion is in­creas­ing day by day due to which health and sev­eral prob­lems are in­creas­ing in the coun­try. Given the un­hy­gienic con­di­tions in which Pak­istani pub­lic is liv­ing, it is no less a mir­a­cle to see vast ma­jor­ity of peo­ple still alive. Re­strict­ing to mu­nic­i­pal­ity and its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in keep­ing the roads, lanes, streets and walk­ways clean; one can ob­serve that a large num­ber of road ac­ci­dents can be at­trib­uted to mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s in­com­pe­tence and lack of sense of duty and care to the pub­lic at large. It is ut­terly haz­ardous for chil­dren to play in streets which are smeared by heaps of waste. This will ul­ti­mately add to the gov­ern­ment spend­ing on health ser­vices.
