THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Mayor K Chandrika has urged the State Government to implement the High Court order  to open the garbage treatment plant at Vilappilsala.

‘’It is the duty of the Government to implement the order,’’ she told Express.

‘’The Corporation will issue an ultimatum to all hotels, marriage halls and other institutions in the city to provide details of their waste management or get their licence cancelled. This will be the third and last ultimatum of its kind. Those without the facilities should intimate us,’’ the Mayor said.

‘’Thiruvananthapuram is not the only city in the State with a garbage problem. But this Corporation is being meted out a step-motherly treatment by the Government. Nowhere else has the garbage plant been locked. Like all the other places, police protection is needed here too.

‘’The agitation at Vilappilsala was more fierce during the first six months of this Corporation

Council. But then, the support by the LDF Government helped the Corporation; but things changed after the UDF came to power. We even have doubts over whether the Government actually supports the agitation,’’ said the Mayor.

 She clarified that it was not proper to say that the city had solved the waste management problem by eighty per cent and said that burying of waste under the ground had reached its maximum.

‘’The waste from from the city has to be taken to Vilappilsala, though we can reduce the quantity to some extent,’’ the Mayor said.
