The BJP has a multistorey building as its state party headquarters at a prime location in Jammu, but it has not been able to lift garbage being dumped outside the office.
“The garbage is being dumped for a long time. Not just locals, the party headquarters also dumps its waste on the roadside,” said Sushil Mahajan, a resident of Trikuta Nagar, which is near the BJP office.
“They (BJP leaders) only click photographs with a broom in the hand for media coverage and social media campaigns. They never see the garbage dumped on roads and even outside their party office,” he added.
Locals alleged that despite repeated requests to the JMC, dustbins have not been installed and even if they are, no one comes to clear them for three to four days.
Chander Mohan Gupta, Mayor, JMC, was unaware of the garbage dumped outside his own party office.
“I will check it right now and get it cleared,” the Mayor said.
