Puducherry, Oct 5 (UNI) The Councillors from Muthialpet resorted to a novel agitation by dumping a garbage-loaded tractor inside the municipal office premises today.
The councillors, who staged a demonstration inside the portico of the office were protesting against the 'lackadisical attitude' on the part of municipal workers to remove the garbage piled up in their area.
Joined by other councillors in the stir, they also dumped a heap of garbage in front of the office of the municipal chairperson Dr Sreedevi to register their protest for her alleged inaction.
According to councillors, the agreement with the private firm for the round-the-clock garbage cleaning was not renewed for Muthialpet.
As municipality workers, enthrusted with the job failed to clear the garbage and complaints to Dr Sreedevi and other officials fell on deaf ears, they resorted to the novel agitation to highlight the problem.
