Three days after the Chandigarh Administration installed an air purifier tower in Sector 26, residents of Dadumajra demanded that an air purifier be set up in their area owing to the air pollution caused due to the waste dump.

People living in the area near the dumping ground at Dadumajra have demanded that an air purification tower be installed there by the administration. Thousands of people have been living near the dump yard which is spread across several acres.

The air purification tower installed at the transport light point in Sector 26 draws in polluted air and releases purified air- which reduces the amount of air pollution around the tower.

On Sunday, Dumping Ground Joint Action Committee Chairman Dyal Krishna wrote a letter to the UT Administrator Banwari Lal Purohit, requesting him to install an air purifier at Dadumajra Colony.

“People say that in order to get rid of the poisonous air, the administration should install an air purifier tower here without delay. People have been falling ill due to this polluted environment for years. It is very important to install air purifier tower at Daddumajra, where the environment is the most polluted,” said Dyal Krishan.

The residents of Dadumajra have been suffering with filth in the area, stench, and disease due to the dumping yard.
